For the past several months, I’ve been reading and reviewing Yoshihito Wakamatsu’s book “The Toyota Mindset”, which outlines what he calls the The Ten Commandments of Taiichi Ohno. These are, what we now know as basic practices in lean manufacturing, but Wakamatsu explanation brings to light the HOW, and not just the current what of the practice.
Below are the review pages and the specific topic I have attempted to summarize. I have learned a great deal from Wakamatsu’s book. I hope that as you read my reviews below, you will learn as well and grow as a practitioner of continuous improvement.
