Kanban / Kaizen / JIT Manufacturing does not Work in the USA
Jim Roberge, USA
I have just completed my first exposure to Kanban / Kaizen JIT manufacturing as an assembly technician. The system does not work in the USA!
The problem is - as I see it - that when you take away structure from the employees to the point that a Production Unit Leader, also known as Production Manager, Leadman or Supervisor, has no real idea what is going on, the complete system crashes and self destructs.
