Shingo, Shigeo. Portland, Oregon: Productivity Press, Shingo, a mechanical engineer and one of the only outside consultants used by Toyota in the early days, actually did what Toyota had truly feared Ohno would do. He wrote down the specific techniques of the Toyota system. Yet he did it in such an anecdotal way and in such an awful translation in the original version that hardly anyone could understand what he was talking about. But Shingo, like all of the lean classics in this section, is best read a little bit at a time as a smorgasbord of ideas.

Shigeo Shingo , Andrew P. This is the "green book" that started it all -- the first book in English on JIT, written from the engineer's viewpoint. 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.

Gathering tips from the improvement experiences in the field he had in at Toyo Ind. Shingo may well be known better in the West than in Japan, as a result of his meeting Norman Bodek , an American entrepreneur and founder of Productivity Inc. Bodek took as many copies of this book as he could to the USA and arranged to translate Shingo's other books into English, eventually having his original study re-translated. Taiichi Ohno and still remain a strong logical and practical basis for the lean production and lean thinking management approaches. The myth prevails that Shingo invented the Toyota Production System but what can be stated is that he did document the system. Shingo contributed to the formalization of some aspects of the management philosophy known as the Toyota Production System TPS , developed and applied in Japan since the s and later implemented in a huge number of companies in the world.
