Shigeo Shingo - The Japanese Industrial Engineer - Books

Books By Shingo

When you read Kaizen and the Art of Creative Thinking, it reveals Dr. Shingo’s magnitude and influence he had as an architect to Toyota’s success. He set the foundation and mindset of the Toyota Production System by providing a clear understanding of processes and operations, the SMED system, Poka-Yoke (Mistake Proofing), and his ability to teach others how to correctly identify and solve problems.
A month before Dr. Shingo died, Norman Bodek had lunch in a restaurant near his house.  To the question,  “Who invented TPS/Lean, you or Ohno?” Without any hesitation Shingo said, “I did, for I was Ohno’s teacher.” Mrs. Shingo also  confirmed this  to Bodek when she told him that it was Taiichi Ohno who called and asked Dr. Shingo to come and teach at Toyota. You will thoroughly enjoy the charm and wit of Dr. Shingo’s stories in this book like the ones in Key Strategie for Plant Improvement. He provides the models and frameworks to allow you to follow Toyota’s highly effective problem solving process.  ( Shingo Newsletter, http://www.shingosweepstakes.com/Shingo/2008/Jan/gateway_to_innovation2.html).
