Summary
  • The Manufacturing Automation Protocol (MAP) developed by General Motors in 1979 could improve the competitive stance of British manufacturing firms, but most UK manufacturers have failed to install MAP-based shop-floor communications systems. Notable exceptions to this trend include ICL's use of MAP at its printed circuit board factory and the British Department of Trade and Industry's grants for MAP installations and MAP research. The development of MAP and its scheduled Version 3.0 release in early 1989 are discussed, as are the British manufacturing firms' reasons for failing to implement MAP systems. British manufacturers' overall capital investments have been declining since 1979, leaving little to spend on MAP. MAP is particularly relevant because it uses the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) model, which is being implemented in the UK and other European countries.
