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.

Providing details on how to implement standardized operations in manufacturing, including essential information on how to establish, improve, and preserve standard operations, Volume 5: Standardized Operations — Jidoka and Maintenance/Safety covers the key topic of Jidoka, or human autonomation — essentially how to separate human activity from machine work without producing defects. It also addresses the essential aspects of maintenance in a JIT environment and how to prevent breakdowns. The book includes time-saving information on how to quickly recognize why injuries occur and create a strategy for zero injuries and zero accidents.
