Last time, I wrote that the manufacturing in Japan is different from that of Europe and the United States, but what is the strength of Japan? I will talk about that this time.
 
*************************************
 
Japan is said that it lost the strength because of the digitization, which increased the modular type manufacturing and it does not require high skill to assemble which Japan was good at.
 
In the analogue era, Japan showed the strength in assembling the complicated products. But I think that the strongest skill of Japanese manufacturing is the power of getting ideas and motivation by getting together on shop-floor.
