Here are a few reviews from Amazon:
Michael Greif has written a book on lean principles long before the MIT study resulted in “The Machine the Changed the World”.
The foundation of lean is generally agreed to be the 5Ss, kaizen, and visual communication. This book, while focused on VC, does adequately cover the others. Consider this… the book was written in the late 80’s, when Lean Manufacturing as a term had not yet been coined.
And now, the review… this is an excellent study on visual communication. Although limited in scope (most practical examples were of western European factories), it is a study that should not be limited to factories; rather, one that has application in many aspects of daily life.
Practical examples, diagrams, drawings, and checklists abound. Definitely user-friendly, and as the subject matter demands, visually communicative.
