    Abstract

    Manufacturing in the twenty-first century has been wrought with the struggle to satisfy the rising demand for greater product variety and more complex products while still maintaining efficient manufacturing operations. However, the literature lacks an overview of which operational performance measures are most affected by increased variety and complexity. This study presents a systematic literature review of the recent scholarly literature on variety, complexity and
    manufacturing operational performance (MOP). Results show that product variety has a consistently negative relationship with MOP across different time, cost, quality and flexibility measures while product complexity lacks evidence of strong relationships with MOP measures.
