Abstract

This study aims to identify the level of flexibility of manufacturing in the State Company for Cotton Industries / Baghdad Factory, after selecting a number of dimensions that reflect the flexibility of manufacturing , and referred to by a number of researchers in this area, which represented by the (flexibility machinery, flexibility of size, mix flexibility, flexibility material handling, and flexibility new product ). Checklist was adopted as a main way to make the study. This was done after a field cohabitation of the researcher for the study site, and through make interviews with the managers concerned for the purpose of completing the checklist, the questions of the study have been answered. So, the study found that the level of flexibility of the machines and flexibility size obtained the highest rate, which reached at (67%), which is moderate rate, indicating the possession of the company these types of flexibility, while the lowest level of flexibility was the process flexibility, which amounted to (43%), this means the low level of process flexibility. Therefore, the process flexibility should be increased, through the treatments proposed in this study, indicating the fact that the process flexibility is important, compared with other types of flexibility, as pointed out by many researchers. As for the rest of the kinds of flexibility, it has got a medium level. Which was almost (50%), as average, which means the weak possession of the company, in question, of the flexibility manufacturing, which puts it in a difficult competitive position.
