Summary

The one manual that every corporate executive should read again and again… re-released for the first time in an affordable paperback version

Known as the JIT bible in Japan, this six-volume set present the genius of Hiroyuki Hirano who leaves no detail to chance in explaining how to implement and maintain a Just-in-Time manufacturing program.  Encyclopedic in scope, it provides unparalleled information on every aspect of JIT, from its philosophical underpinnings to the myriad systems, techniques, and tools for virtually every factory setting

  • Offers  practical examples in support of lean implementation and quality maintenance
  • Provides JIT management forms that Hirano uses to implement "JIT Awareness Revolutions"
  • Contains answers to every problem a JIT professional will face and multiple options for every stage of JIT implementation

"This book is a compendium of the experiences and knowledge I have gained during many years of enthusiastic work in battling waste in factories and promoting the development of JIT production. As such, this is a manual for professional consultants. It enables them to tell the plain truth and to overcome vexing problems. This book is not for sale to the general public. I would not want it to be sold that way. 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, February 1989, from the Introduction
