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 was first published in Japan 20 years ago.

Covering all the techniques essential to setting up a flow production system in manufacturing, Volume 3: Flow Manufacturing — Multi-Process Operations and Kanban includes a basic introduction to the relationship between inventory and flow production and their roles in manufacturing. It also provides discussion of multi-process operations and precautions and procedures for developing them. Outlining the key topic of labor cost reduction and steps to achieving it, this definitive volume also covers the essentials of kanban and visual control systems in a flow manufacturing environment.
