Takahashi's Scheduler Case Book: Introduction

President Kuniyoshi Takahashi was born in 1958 in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture.

During his college days, when he enjoyed rock climbing and winter climbing, he travelled solo by bicycle for 2800 km throughout Japan (from the southern island of Kyushu to the northern island of Hokkaido), 5400 km across the United States (from Seattle to New York), and 4500 km from England to Egypt (via Holland, Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Greece).

For over 20 years, he has devoted himself entirely to developing the ultimate production scheduling system. He says, "I personally devoted more than 4000 hours of my time in designing Production Scheduling System Asprova, Japan's No.1 production scheduler. Including program development, Asprova took over 15 man-years to create. Now it is my earnest pursuit to help more Asprova users increase their profits and join the winners of the manufacturing industry."

Through his many years of implementing production schedulers at numerous companies around the world he has amassed a vast experience of know-how regarding how production schedulers can be be used to enhance a company's kaizen efforts and promote a high level of lean manufacturing.

Many of his more technical articles will be featured in our main Lean Manufacturing Japan area of the site but a more personal view of his many episodes will now appear in Consultant's Journal.
