Create a system of human resource development

There is a word that “Manufacturing is human resource development”. No matter how good a machine is, no matter how Jidoka (autonomation) is advanced, it is human resources to make products. In order to make good products, it is necessary to develop good human resources.
As a system of human resource development, there are “position-based training, and specialized skill training” of Off-JT and “manufacturing training, specialized skill acquisition training, improvement ability development training, QC circle activities, and leader development training” of OJT etc.
“Corporate culture of teaching and being taught” is necessary to create such a “system of human resource development”.

Establish correct working method

In order to establish the foundation of skill, it is necessary for the managers and supervisors to set the correct work method, teach it to operators, and let them follow it.
Practical training for each operator leads to improvement of quality and productivity.

Experience and learn problem solving

Due to lack of understanding of waste and lack of knowledge on how to develop employee’s improvement ability, finding and solving problems will be delayed, productivity will be reduced, and it takes time to develop human resources.
When managers and supervisors recognize problems, investigate causes, and thoroughly follow up repeatedly, and learn problem solving together with operators, it is possible to create a strong shop floor.

3 reasons why we are chosen REASON

REASON 1

Improvement experience of
more than 1,000 companies in 40 countries

There must be the shop floor issues that cannot be solved by your own company alone. Improvements and reforms for manufacturing industry to survive, regardless of country or industry, need development of your human resources through practical experiences of improvement, and strengthening of your production system base.

REASON 2

Consulting that shop floor workers
acknowledge our superiority and be pleased

In conventional consulting styles, there was a distance between consultant and the shop floor because it was promoted mainly consultant and management executives. Our consultant can provide a guidance without a distance between consultant and the shop floor through the guidance based on the "seeds of improvement" in a concrete way, instead of "finding fault" like a critic.

REASON 3

Continuous improvement will continue
even after the end of guidance

While strengthening "human resource development", we focus on the "overall flow" from design to purchasing, manufacturing, logistics, and production control, and provide guidance that matches the actual situation of your company. Continuous improvement will continue even after the end of guidance through the guidance that is acceptable to the shop floor workers.
