MARCELO RODOLFO, Vallejo. Standardization of the Eucalyptus Grandis Sawmill Process of Searching for Competitiveness Necessary for an Export Opening. Vis. futuro [online]. 2009, vol.11, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1668-8708.
The present paper has as objective to research the effects obtained as a consequence of a re engineering, carried out in the management in an important Eucalyptus grandis sawmill of the Argentine Republic. The revision of the main management parameters is considered, connected to the logical sequence of decisions that included from the redefinition of the staff, passing through new schemes of felling and even the orientation to new domestic and foreign markets. Among the industrial process parameters more sought for by this re engineering, was to obtain a standardization of the sawing processes in such a way that the noticeable oscillations which did not allow being certain of the true productive capacity, could be diminished. In the present paper, one describes not a series of technique-operative decisions, but also the training scheme of intermediate authorities and the promotion of leadership as a fundamental pillar that sustained the desired organizational change. The need of improving the economy results of the enterprise, led to that simultaneously, with the redefinition of the productive processes, the destination of the production was reoriented to offer its products to extremely competitive markets, such as Asian garden furniture and United States packing.
