Handbook of Management Scales/Manufacturing process innovation implementation performance
Manufacturing process innovation implementation performance (alpha = 0.798, CR = 0.809, AVE = 0.460)
The 5-point Likert-type scale was developed based on previous literature, interviews with managers, and item-sorting exercises.
Manufacturing process innovation refers to all activities required to invent and implement a new manufacturing process.
- Using the new practice/technology, we achieved greater productivities than we originally planned.
- The new practice/technology improved the quality of our process more than we had originally expected it would. (dropped after confirmatory factor analysis)
- The new practice/technology improved our responsiveness more than we had hoped.
- The new practice/technology achieved significantly better overall technical improvements than we had originally expected it would.
- The new practice/technology performed significantly better than we had originally expected it would.
- The new practice/technology was not as effective or efficient as we had originally hoped it would be. (reverse coded)

The AVE value was below 0.5 and the factor loading of item six was below 0.6 and these values are, thus, too low.
