Learning lean manufacturing close up has been the focus of a series of tours to Japan hosted by Food South Australia member Shinka Management and recently they released a new video to share the experiences of recent participants in a recent Lean Japan Tour.
The tours include training at a Toyota Group training facility, factory visits within the Toyota supply chain, hands-on lean training and visits to non-automotive companies to learn how lean is applied beyond Toyota’s supply chain. A day of sightseeing in Tokyo is included at the end of the tour.
Clients attending this particular tour came from Denmark, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand,Turkey, USA, Switzerland, Malaysia and Canada. The video can be seen here on YouTube.
Further tours are planned for 2017. If you are interested in learning more about lean manufacturing, check out tour dates and programs here.
