The objective of a synchronized production system is to harmonize all the elements of the manufacturing process based on the Just-in-Time strategy. This strategy is designed to improve return on investment in business by reducing in-process inventory and its associated costs. The process is driven by a series of signals, or Kanban, that tell production processes to make the next part. The Synchronized Production System sets out the fundamentals of the process clearly and concisely and shows the remarkable results that can be achieved: Money previously tied up in stock is released Quicker response times to customer orders, leading to increased customer satisfaction Custom manufacture to order - improving equity return by reducing risk Dramatically improved product quality This ground-breaking book also explains how to improve performance through changes to management processes making it an invaluable reference for managers in all types and size of business.
