While the 19th century gave birth to the Industrial Revolution, the 20th century saw a new kind of revolution in the Information Technology Revolution. The Information Revolution deals with the development of technologies that allow quicker and cheaper transmission of data and images, and storage and retrieval of information. Integration of resources and business units has become more effective than ever primarily due to the development of enterprise wide information systems, the Internet, and Web-based information systems.

Production and operations organizations have been the forerunners in the implementation of such information systems. There are essentially two types of technologies in manufacturing and operational organizations: core and enabling technologies. The core technology is that technology that provides leverage to the organization to fulfill its mission and grow (Laugen, Acur, Boer, & Frick, 2005). For example, Toyota’s core competency is its manufacturing technology, Cannon’s is its printer motor technology, British Aerospace’s is wing technology, while Boeing believes its core competency to be systems integration technology. On the other hand, enabling technologies are those that facilitate or assist the core technology in doing what it does best.

An example of such technologies is information technologies that run the Toyota assembly line and call center specialists who assure that problems with information technology can be mitigated. Information technologies in manufacturing companies offer both operational and strategic benefits. The strategic benefit of IT includes enhanced competitive position, improved strategic flexibility, and facilitating manufacturing globalization. During the past decade, the role of IT in production management changed from the back-office supporting tools to a strategic role. Strategic information systems (SIS) now play a critical role in helping organizations to increase production efficiency, and to be more effective and competitive.
