Abstract

The effects of corporate efforts to reduce tied-up capital is exempliefied by the production system of Volvo cars. Two approaches are applied. The first one shows how Volvo gradually integrated production units into the system, through takeovers and new establishments. The second one discusses the integration of one particular process, the body assembly, against varying technologies and contracts of cooperation between the two companies involved.
