"It is a book for manufacturing companies that are fighting desperately for survival and that will go to any length to improve their factories and overcome the obstacles to success. One could even call this book a ‘bible’ for corporate survival."
Known as the JIT bible in Japan, JIT Implementation Manual — The Complete Guide to Just-in-Time Manufacturing presents the genius of Hiroyuki Hirano, a top international consultant with vast experience throughout Asia and the West. Encyclopedic in scope, this six-volume practical reference provides unparalleled information on every aspect of JIT— the waste-eliminating, market-oriented production system. This historic, yet timeless classic is just as crucial in today’s fast-changing global marketplace as when it was first published in Japan 20 years ago.
Volume 6: JIT Implementation Forms and Charts provides a comprehensive diagnostic tool for JIT operations and includes a wealth of checklists, memos, and essential forms for recognizing waste in operations and implementing the 5S’s. It includes engineering forms for line-balancing, skills training, visual controls, changeover improvement, mistake-proofing, and standard operations. This indispensable resource also supplies a set of forms and charts useful when introducing and promoting JIT or lean to your plant and includes the JIT management forms that Hirano uses to implement "JIT Awareness Revolutions."
