论老子

道,领导也。领导必需要不断呼唤,教导下属以及以身作则。下属的过和错皆因领导懒惰。

Before Professor Jones coined the phrase “Lean Production System” almost a decade ago, the author has been implementing the Toyota Production System throughout his 23-year career. According to the author, the Lean Production System as described by Professor Daniel T. Jones is not the same as the Toyota Production System. 

The author found that lean production system is only one of the three core pillars of the Toyota Production System. The other two missing pillars are Industrial Engineering and the ‘Just-in-time’ philosophy (see Figure below).

 

Figure S3 -1: Difference between the lean production system and the Toyota Production system



The Just-in time philosophy is best explained by its single-minded purpose. That is, waste eliminations. Section 3 describes to you, 7 examples of quantum leaps in the productivity improvements achieved by merely focusing on the identification and the ultimate elimination of the 7 wastes.

In year 2005 alone, more than a thousand mobile phone making companies sprouted in Shenzhen, China. Mobile phone making was an exploding business with plump profits for the makers.

But at the end of year 2006, I started hearing many phone makers were facing financial difficulties. What happened over such a short period of less than 2 years?

Did anybody pull the carpet under the feet of all the mobile phone makers?

The problem was these newly sprung up companies after having invested lots of money into renting factory, bought machinery and hiring workers did not control their costs of production well. Money which was supposedly well earned was lost through all kind of wastes, occurring everywhere in the factory.  

If you still do not understand why waste is the root cause of a company not making money, then you must read this section. You will read about the author’s rich experiences in eliminating the 7 types of waste in more than ten companies. These wastes are: waste of over-production, waste of inventory, waste of transportation, waste of motion, waste of waiting, waste of processing and waste of quality.

Please do not over-look anyone of these wastes. In each of the following chapters, one of these wastes was the sole factor that strangled the factory to near death.

China is the next economic engine of growth. It sold more than 1 millions cars in 2006. There are more than fifty car manufacturers dispersed all over China. Among these car makers, who will make it rich? Who will lose their pants in ten years’ time?

Don’t make a guess. Think in term of wastes.

If a car maker were to operate like Toyota, it will make lots of money. On the other hand, if it were to operate like General Motors, in good years it will make some profits and in bad years it will definitely lose heavily.
