Just in Time
Gemba Academy is proud to present this "Just in Time" video series which was originally produced by our consulting partners at the Kaizen Institute. The main topic of this video series is Kaizen and Just in Time which was the original phrase used to describe what we now call Lean Manufacturing. Throughout this series you'll see many examples of lean principles in action at companies such as Wiremold and Giorgio Foods. You'll also receive an excellent review of topics such as One Piece Flow, Takt Time, U shaped cells, Production Leveling, Kanban, 5S, the Visual Workplace, and Standard Work.
Ron Pereira introduces this video series.
