Shingo, whose work at Toyota provided the foundation for JIT, teaches how to implement non-stock production in your JIT manufacturing operations. The culmination of his extensive writings on efficient production management and continuous improvement, this book is an essential companion volume to his other landmark books on key elements of JIT, including SMED and poka-yoke.

It covers--

  • Fundamental flaws in European and American production philosophies.
  • Basic concepts for improving production systems.
  • The "scientific thinking mechanism" -- a new approach to improvement.
  • Implementing a production method in an age of authorized stock production.
  • Development of production functions in the age of non-stock production.
  • Significance of the different production systems.
  • Dr. Shingo pulls together all the pieces of the production puzzle and thoroughly destroys the myth of the inevitability of waste and inventory.

    About the Author:

    Shigeo Shingo was an influential figure in the improvement of productivity and his methods became an integral part of the Japan Management Association and the Toyota Motor Corporation. He was an industrial engineer who founded the Institute of Management Improvement. He gained recognition for developing the following concepts: Just In Time (JIT) or the Toyota Production System, Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED), and Zero Quality Control where the principle of Poka-Yoke (mistake-proofing) was created. He graduated from Yamanashi Technical College with a degree in mechanical engineering and worked as a business consultant and lecturer on productivity improvements for various companies throughout the world. In 1970 he was awarded The Yellow Ribbon Medal for Contributions to streamlining operations in the shipbuilding industry. In 1988, in honor of Shigeo Shingo, Utah State University founded the Shingo Prize for excellence in manufacturing which highlights company achievements.
