This is the "green book" that started it all -- the first book in English on JIT, written from the engineer's viewpoint. When Omark Industries bought 500 copies and studied it companywide, Omark became the American pioneer in JIT.

Here is Dr. Shingo's classic industrial engineering rationale for the priority of process-based over operational improvements in manufacturing. He explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota production system, examines production as a functional network of processes and operations, and then discusses the mechanism necessary to make JIT possible in any manufacturing plant.

  • Provides original source material on Just-ln-Time
  • Demonstrates new ways to think about profit, inventory, waste, and productivity
  • Explains the principles of leveling, standard work procedures, multi-machine handling, supplier relations, and much more

If you are a serious student of manufacturing, you will benefit greatly from reading this primary resource on the powerful fundamentals of JIT.

Page vi - When we look at process, we see a flow of material in time and space; its transformation from raw material to semi-processed component to finished product. When we look at operations, on the other hand, we see the work performed to accomplish this transformation — the interaction and flow of equipment and operators in time and space.
