Your own unique production system
Not all businesses can incorporate TPS with the following three pillars into their work place without modifications: JIT (Just-In-Time) and Jidoka (Automation), and Kanban (Index Card). It will be a pivotal decision to establish your own production system which takes into consideration the characteristic of your corporation while making a good use of the TPS way of thinking. If you could, to give you a few leads, build up your own unique production system based upon your rich experience of dealing with your clients and contractors, or within a manufacturing process that presupposes a lot of production, you would be guaranteed the emergence of a very strong manufacturing shop floor.
