This paper by A. Bayo, J. E. Galdón-Sánchez and R. Gil examines the determinants of changes in the organization of production, using detailed data from a new plant-level survey of 1003 plants representing all the various manufacturing industries in Spain. The survey reveals recent developments in outsourcing, and suggests that recent changes in other key areas of production organization have been crucial in setting the boundaries of the firm.
