Abstract
 
Description
This is the "green book" that started it all -- the first book in English on JIT, written from the engineer's viewpoint. When Omark Industries bought 500 copies and studied it companywide, Omark became the American pioneer in JIT.Here is Dr. Shingo's classic industrial engineering rationale for the priority of process-based over operational improvements in manufacturing. He explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota production system, examines production as a functional network of processes and operations, and then discusses the mechanism necessary to make JIT possible in any manufacturing plant.Provides original source material on Just-ln-TimeDemonstrates new ways to think about profit, inventory, waste, and productivityExplains the principles of leveling, standard work procedures, multi-machine handling, supplier relations, and much moreIf you are a serious student of manufacturing, you will benefit greatly from reading this primary resource on the powerful fundamentals of JIT. - from Amzon
