The strong intrinsic which Japanese manufacturing industry has 12     2018.06.25

I am visiting factories almost every day to do Kaizen. I always have a folding umbrella. So it’s OK even in the rainy season.

*************************************

In the past, such as facility up-time analysis, I had to spend full one day to get the data of the plant with observation sheets and a stop-watch. But now, if the sensors are attached to the target facilities, it is possible to connect it to a personal computer and display the graph automatically in real time. It is also possible to install them on their own without asking the experts.

That is, the sensors should be used to enhances the five senses of human beings. Sensors are always based on our thought. Using the new sensors and systems, we raise the level of improvements that have been made so far. Then finally the systems may grow up and become big. So there is no need to introduce a large system from the beginning.

Question: I wrote that the sensors are for us and we should grow systems step by step using them. What do you think?
