Sep 18, Bob Wallner rated it liked it Shelves: culture , kaizen , leadership , lean. Shigeo Shingo is one of my favorite authors from the Japanese productivity movement.
His work with SMED and poka yoke is unquestionably some of the most advanced writings on the topic. His skills as an industrial engineer are virtually unmatched even today. In this book, he looks at the Toyota production system from a consultants viewpoint. Much of the book discusses the areas he's comfortable with SMED and poka yoke , but there are several instances where he goes outside of his comfort zone Dr.
Much of the book discusses the areas he's comfortable with SMED and poka yoke , but there are several instances where he goes outside of his comfort zone and discusses other facets of the Toyota production system. These areas are primarily waste reduction and the use of kanban. Even though I am a fan of Dr. Shingo, I was not a fan of this book. Like the adage, if a carpenter has a hammer every problem looks like a nail, set up and error proofing seem to be Dr.
Shingo's hammer. I found his assessments of kanban lacking deep understanding and in another section he incorrectly defines takt time as "the time it takes to produce one piece of product. This time is equivalent to the total working time divided by production quantity.
It's hard to criticize someone who has contributed so much to the science of improvement, but I did not feel this was his best work. I have several books on my shelf written by him yet to read.
I know I will gain a lot of wisdom from those books. Mar 03, Henrique Esser rated it it was amazing. This is a must for who is starting the lean way. Nov 29, Mike Thelen rated it it was amazing. There is no one better to learn from than the original May 04, Frank Dodd rated it did not like it Shelves: work. The book is a bad interpretation -Or perhaps a word for word interpretation of the original Japanese language it was written in.
This to make seems to understand hard! If you like that sentence then you will like the book. I read half-way through before I gave up. View 1 comment. Nov 19, dewie rated it liked it.
