چکیده

یکی از ویژگی‌های عصر حاضر شدت یافتن تغییرات است. در عرصة مدیریت تولید، چابکی به‌عنوان پاسخی متناسب با شرایط زمان مورد توجه قرار گرفته و در پاره‌ای از تحقیقات، سعی بر شناسایی عوامل تأثیرگذار شده است. اگرچه برخی از این عوامل را می‌توان زیرمجموعه فناوری به حساب آورد، لیکن مطالعة کلیة عوامل مرتبط با فناوری در یک پژوهش انجام نگردیده است. در این مقاله، مفهوم فناوری در سه بعد فناوری تولید، فناوری محصول و فناوری اطلاعات دیده شده و تأثیر مؤلفه‌های هریک از این ابعاد بر چابکی در صنعت الکترونیک ایران بررسی و در مورد ارتباط آنها با چابکی بحث شده است. به علاوه مؤلفه‌های مختلف بر اساس دو عامل اهمیت و فاصلة آنها از وضع مطلوب، رتبه‌بندی شده‌اند که نشان‌دهندة اولویت پرداختن  به آنها در مسیر چابکی است. در این رتبه‌بندی "فناوری‌های پیشرفتة تولید" در جایگاه  اول قرار گرفته است.

چکیده [English]

As a response to the intensity of change in the current era, a new manufacturing paradigm known as  the Agility paradigm has been created. Some studies have defined the factors affecting the agility, of which technology is one of those factors. Since all the attributes of technology have not been considered in one single research study, and so  this paper intends to do that. Three aspects of technology-namely, production technology, product technology and information technology- are proposed and the effect of their attributes on agility is investigated. Moreover, the ranking of items is based on two factors, their importance and their gap with  the ideal situation, has been done. “Advanced Manufacturing Technology “ is at the top of the list and so deserves the most attention.
