Lean manufacturing is the production control technique for completely eliminating all waste from your manufacturing. Here at Lean-Manufacturing Japan (LMJ) we would like 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. The Consultant's Journal blog is where we hope to have discussion from various consultants, researchers and other experts in the field of lean manufacturing.
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 LMJ would like to offer you a warm welcome. Please feel free to comment on any of our blogs here and if you have anything you'd like to write about yourself then please let us know and we'll add your say to the blog as well.
