Shingijutsu Kaizen Seminar – Day 4

Today was the final report-out. In these events this is quite ritualized. Each team has a takt time, and must present a standard work combination sheet that shows the flow of their presentation. Everyone must participate in the presentation. There is a general set sequence for what is shown first, second, third, etc.

Because we only had two days on the shop floor (plus the fact that the host company really wasn’t set up with the background support logistics for rapid idea implementation), a lot of the “kaizens” presented were actually results from simulations. While there is still some learning value, I think that the participants missed something in not seeing what really good kaizen response looks like.
