Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Are you ready to implement Just-in-Time, but unsure how to teach your operators about the power of JIT? To assist you in this effort, we've developed the Just-in-Time for Operators Shingo's classic industrial engineering rationale for the priority of process-based over operational improvements in manufacturing. Explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota Production System, so that you can apply them in your own plant. This book clarifies the fundamental principles of JIT: leveling, standard work procedures, and multimachine handling.

Synopsis:

The green book that started it all, this is first book on JIT in English from the engineer's viewpoint. When Omark Industries bought 500 copies and studied it company-wide, Omark became the US pioneer in JIT. It provides Dr. Shingo's classic industrial engineering rationale for implementing process-based rather than operational improvements in manufacturing. He explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota production system, examines production as a functional network of processes and operations, and then discusses the organization-wide mechanism necessary to make JIT possible in any manufacturing plant. He demonstrates new ways to think about profit, inventory, waste, and productivity.
