Summary

"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 first published in Japan 20 years ago.

Volume 2: Waste and the 5S’s provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts of waste in manufacturing and methods of discovering, removing, and preventing the creation of waste. It also teaches the 5S system, a method for organizing the workplace to eliminate waste, demonstrating how to use red tags for visual control and signboards for visual orderliness. The book also illustrates how to organize jigs and tools.
