Lean Manufacturing is the production control technique for eliminating the waste from your manufacturing. We would like not only to introduce you to the many production control techniques that have been created in Japan such as the Toyota Production System, Production Scheduling, JIT, KANBAN and 5S but also to have discussion from consultants, researchers and other experts in the field of lean manufacturing as well. Our goal is to show you how Lean Manufacturing is actually being used for real companies in practical situations to improve everyday production. Not just in Japan but around the world. So whether you’re here to share your knowledge or learn from our experience, everyone at Lean Manufacturing Japan would like to offer you a warm welcome.
