Numerous approaches on manufacturing strategies have been formulated to address new challenges and to remain competitive in globalization. Within such a Performance measurement frameworks have been important in manufacturing has offered an effective approach for the analysis and quantification of continuous improvement of their operational performance of production production systems. Moreover, they are necessary to understand and monitor the manufacturing strategies and to compete in the market place. associated with the adoption of performance measures aligned with strategies is a key requirement for gaining competitive advantages. This research comprises the study of theoretical and empirical modelling of performance measures and the development of a new performance measurement framework applicable to manufacturing industry. The purpose of this research is to create a new performance measurement framework for the complete evaluation of manufacturing systems. The framework comprises a complete methodology to facilitate the definition of manufacturing strategy and manufacturing system behaviours. management systems. The creation of performance measurement frameworks Nowadays, manufacturing organizations have focused their attention on the , I variability of the production activities in order to increase the effectiveness of their performance measurement system. The performance measurement system includes the development of a performance measure allocation system to enable the correct allocation of performance measures to the problems encountered in manufacturing processes. The analysis of manufacturing process is an essential activity to identify main contributory causes which affect the overall performance of manufacturing systems. For that reason, the research provides a systematic review of the characteristics of performance measures to make inferences about manufacturing process behaviour and to establish most appropriate corrective actions and practice that lead companies to sustainable competitive advantage.
