Abstract [en]

Succeeding with continuous improvement is important for manufacturing companies to increase the competitive edge. In order to succeed with continuous improvement, literature shows that communication of improvement indicators need to be integrated with communication of control indicators. This paper identifies divergencies between current practice and theory in the communication of CI, which can be a reason for why manufacturing companies fail in their CI implementation. An integration of control indicators and improvement indicators could improve continuous improvement results, increasing business performance.
