ITT Automotive is while creating a new-generation anti-lock brake system (ABS), designated the MK-20. The case concentrates on the amount of automation for use in producing this new system, and whether all plants should make use of the same process technology. Because of intensifying cost pressure and quickly growing interest in lower-cost ABS, the expansion team and senior management (located in Frankfurt, Germany) strongly favor utilizing a single, highly automated production process within the four plants scheduled to create the MK-20 (situated in Germany, Belgium, and also the U . s . States). Managers in the company's two plants within the U . s . States favor using less automation technology to be able to allow greater versatility for enhancing process technology with time.
