Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

The nature of manufacturing has changed very considerably since the majority of today's financial models were developed. Recent research has clearly identified a need to change the nature of performance measurement in light of these changes in manufacturing. On-going research at the University of Strathclyde is developing a reference model which may be used to assist in the development of comprehensive and integrated performance measurement systems. The reference model is being based on the many of the principles of the Viable System Model which identified the failings of financial performance measurement and has proposed an alternative. The alternative is based on the classic measure of productivity, that is, a simple ratio, but also includes the need to address wider issues such as stakeholder requirements.
