Here is a book that serves as a manual which can be used to drive your lean efforts.
Hirano’s ‘5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace’ and ‘JIT Implementation manual’ were classics. They contained detailed descriptions of the techniques and clear instructions that could be immediately implemented on the shop floor. However, they were also very prescriptive and not so easy to adapt to all sectors. This book brings out the depth of the thought process behind Hirano’s work. The know-why and the know-how that is contained in this book will be extremely useful to every business in today’s scenario. The clarity which Hirano brings to each aspect of the transformation to JIT / Lean and the delineation of the principles involved will be invaluable to every leader and manager aiming for business excellence.
