The objective of our research is the development of management methods for the effective introduction of new production processes into companies. To support this a descriptive model of process innovation has to be developed. In this paper we will present the framework of such a model and discuss the theoretical and practical implications in the light of data collected in case-studies of the introduction of Flexible Manufacturing systems into Dutch and British firms.
