"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."—Hiroyuki Hirano
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.
Providing a comprehensive introduction to the just-in-time production system, Volume 1: The Just-in-Time Production System dispels outdated myths and ideas about manufacturing that are still prevalent. Supplying essential background information on the JIT approach to production management, this user-friendly resource builds a strong foundation for implementation.
