Cost-effective manufacturing and technology-based manufacturing are basic keywords in contemporary manufacturing. Efficiency and productivity require extremely good job management, correlation of resources and competencies to production requirements, as well as continuous monitor­ing of possible wastes and additional expenditures, i.e. real efficiency of the continuous improvement process. In the current article the methodology of technological resources and competence management evaluation in terms of manufacturing system ontology are analysed in pre-order and post-order fulfilment stages. The expedience of resources operation and order outsourcing, but also corresponding risk management principles are analysed. The elaborated methodology enables enterprises to implement a more rational utilization of manufacturing resources by estimating the influence of existing competencies and technological possibilities into productivity and efficiency.
