Description - Kanban Just-in Time at Toyota by Japan Management Association
Management Begins at the Workplace (revised). Consumers will buy when they can get top quality at the lowest cost. The Toyota Production System delivers just that. In Kanban and Just-In-Time at Toyota, you will see how the source of profit is in the manufacturing process. By creating the world's most efficient production system, Toyota was able to continually prosper while other companies foundered. You will learn how through the application of Just-In-Time (JIT), Toyota is able to bring its inventory down close to nothing. Using the Kanban system, they only withdraw parts and materials at the time needed and in the quantity needed, in fact, just in time. However, the real secret behind Toyota's success is the unending search for better ways to improve the productivity of the process and the quality of the product. The concepts are applicable to virtually any manufacturing company. The system is both rational and cost effective. Also implicit is the philosophy of respect for humanity. All employees at your plant will benefit from the Toyota Production System. Shopfloor workers will feel a sense of ownership of their machines and their jobs.
Written in an entertaining and easy to understand style, this book is the essential resource for everyone who wants to implement JIT. (Includes additional materials prepared by Yasuhiro Monden, a leading authority on the Toyota system). (Also available in Spanish - call for details)
