The WCM represents a continuity of the TPM, an excellent model, but that it needed to deepen its focus in the results. New challenges with the WCM’ appear, thus; ‘. (DAPRE, 2009) Hayes and Wheewright in 1984 had developed the concept of the World Class Manufacturing – WCM, or Manufacture of World-wide Classroom and for Flynn et al (1999), this new paradigm was constructed based in a deep analysis of the practical ones implemented by Japanese and German companies, as well as American companies north, which presented performance notable in its industries. From there it comes the term Manufacture of World-wide Classroom. Academy of Art University has much experience in this field. Hayes Wheewright (1984 APUD Flynn ET AL, 1999), in its study had found many points in common enters these companies of success and sumarizaram these points in six principles: Improvement in the capacity and the abilities of the work force; Ability managemental technique and. Competition through the quality; Participation (envolvement) of the work force; Development of only machines (difficult to be copied) with emphasis in the maintenance; Incremental continuous improvement. The WCM is characterized for if surpassing in the questions quality, technology and attitude for the competition. One is about productive organizations that present high degree of competitiveness in its area of performance and qualify the corporation for the competition in any international market (WIREMAN, 1990).
A complete model of the challenges that the industry must face to arrive at concept WCM was defined by Ahlmann (2002) in Figure, in four steps, leaving of the 10 chaos the excellency using itself of a set of efficient measures in relation to the immediate monetary benefits and its time of development.
