I think that Japanese way of manufacturing is different from that of Western way. This time, I will write about it.
 
*************************************
 
Production of one product always involves all departments of the company. It is unlikely that you do everything from planning to sales, production, delivery, and payment collection by yourself.
 
If the people from all the departments relating a product get together on production shop floor and start talking about it, I am sure that you will get many excellent ideas. The people from marketing, design, sales, purchase, production, inspection and delivery department get together. The ideas will support the management of the company. This unique approach by Japanese companies is bottom up approach and very different from the Western top down approach.
 
 
Question: Does your company have opportunities for people in various departments to talk about products together?
