9780029320402: The New Manufacturing Challenge

As a consultant, Kiyoshi Suzaki has helped scores of Fortune 500 clients improve manufacturing operations and get the job done faster, cheaper, better, and safer. Now, in this detailed "operating manual" - full of more step-by-step applications than any other book available - Suzaki spells out new options in production and employee resources that can help American industry regain the cutting edge in price, quality, and delivery of products.
