In their recent book After Lean Production (1997), Kochan, Lansbury, and MacDuffie retreated from the unsubstantiated argument advanced by their IMVP
colleagues, viz., that lean production provides challenging jobs performed by multiskilled workers in a high-trust, participatory environment.
The research represents, both in scale and approach, an opportunity to test the prescriptions of the lean production model put forward by the influential International Motor Vehicle Program (IMVP
Moreover, a 1989 study by the International Motor Vehicle Program (IMVP
) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology supported the hypothesis of an increasing technology gap developing in the area of flexible manufacturing between Australian and Japanese assemblers.(15)

Some indications of the adaptation that occurred in transplant supply operations are found in reports from the International Motor Vehicle Program (IMVP
) at the Massachucetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

As discussed in detail by Jonsson, the IMVP
researchers do not pay sufficient attention to a number of aspects that affect the number of man-hours.
