A Study of the Toyota Production System

From an Industrial Engineering Viewpoint

A Study of the Toyota Production System

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.

Agile Project Management with Kanban

Agile Project Management with Kanban

Use Kanban to maximize efficiency, predictability, quality, and value With Kanban, every minute you spend on a software project can add value for customers. One book can help you achieve this goal: Agile Project Management with Kanban. Author Eric Brechner pioneered Kanban within the Xbox engineering team at Microsoft. Now he shows you exactly how to make it work for your team. Think of this book as “Kanban in a box”: open it, read the quickstart guide, and you’re up and running fast. As you gain experience, Brechner reveals powerful techniques for right-sizing teams, estimating, meeting deadlines, deploying components and services, adapting or evolving from Scrum or traditional Waterfall, and more. For every step of your journey, you’ll find pragmatic advice, useful checklists, and actionable lessons. This truly is “Kanban in a box”: all you need to deliver breakthrough value and quality. Use Kanban techniques to: Start delivering continuous value with your current team and project Master five quick steps for completing work backlogs Plan and staff new projects more effectively Minimize work in progress and quickly adjust to change Eliminate artificial meetings and prolonged stabilization Improve and enhance customer engagement Visualize workflow and fix revealed bottlenecks Drive quality upstream Integrate Kanban into large projects Optimize sustained engineering (contributed by James Waletzky) Expand Kanban beyond software development

Computational Intelligence in Design and Manufacturing

Computational Intelligence in Design and Manufacturing

Take the next step in Integrated Product and Process Development This pioneering book is the first to apply state-of-the-art computational intelligence techniques to all phases of manufacturing system design and operations. It equips engineers with a superior array of new tools for optimizing their work in Integrated Product and Process Development. Drawing on his extensive experience in the field of advanced manufacturing, Andrew Kusiak has masterfully embedded coverage of data mining, expert systems, neural networks, autonomous reasoning techniques, and other computational methods in chapters that cover all key facets of integrated manufacturing system design and operations, including: * Process planning * Setup reduction * Production planning and scheduling * Kanban systems * Manufacturing equipment selection * Group technology * Facilities and manufacturing cell layout * Warehouse layout * Manufacturing system product and component design * Supplier evaluation Each chapter includes questions and problems that address key issues on model integration and the use of computational intelligence approaches to solve difficulties across many areas of an enterprise. Examples and case studies from real-world industrial projects illustrate the powerfulapplication potential of the computational techniques. Comprehensive in scope and flexible in approach, Computational Intelligence in Design and Manufacturing is right in step with the enterprise of the future: extended, virtual, model-driven, knowledge-based, and integrated in time and space. It is essential reading for forward-thinking students and professional engineers and managers working in design systems, manufacturing, and related areas.

Kanban Made Simple

Demystifying and Applying Toyota's Legendary Manufacturing Process

Kanban Made Simple

Kanban Made Simple is the first simple "how-to" guide for incorporating the just-in-time ingenuity of the Kanban system into any manufacturing environment. From the Japanese word for "visual record", the technique dictates that suppliers deliver parts to the warehouse only as they are needed, reducing storage in the production area. Using before-and-after case studies, this easy-to-follow guide contains information on establishing project goals, forming a Kanban team, and designing the process.
