By: Hiroyuki Hirano, Makoto Furuya

10 Digit  ISBN   0971243611    0-9712436-1-1

A new JIT/Lean manufacturing book by Hiroyuki Hirano and Makoto Furuya, edited by Norman Bodek. The book provides a comprehensive step-by-step approach to the tools of Lean Manufacturing and demonstrates that Lean must be lead by a commitment to change and a positive approach to innovation.

Fifteen years ago Mr. Hirano’s JIT Implementation Manual was sold in the US for $2,000. Can a business manual be worth $2,000? If you read the book and applied JIT principles in your company you could have saved millions of dollars. Mr. Hirano’s and Mr. Furuya’s new book will surely dazzle you.

JIT Is Flow is a treasure chest on how to implement JIT/Lean. This book is a wonderful addition to Jeffrey Liker’s The Toyota Way, and books by James P. Womack and others. Mr. Ohno and Dr. Shingo would surely have approved.
