Abstract
Manufacturing networks of multinational corporations (MNCs) follow different production strategies. The applied production strategy can vary within manufacturing networks of corporations and has to be considered by benchmarks of manufacturing networks. However, most approaches do not consider the different production strategies within manufacturing networks of corporations, thus fail to take into account the individual goals and priorities of each manufacturing network. In this paper the best-possible production strategy for a manufacturing network in the steel industry is determined by an empirical investigation and a conceptual approach. Based on the defined production strategy an evaluation-logic is derived, which allows to benchmark different manufacturing networks with individual production strategies.
