Format: Hardcover
Shigeo Shingo details the approach to improve unefficient equipments. The technical approach and the people change management are combined and explained in numerous convincing examples. This book is a must to anyone starting as manufacturing engineer (project, maintenance production ...)

Format: Hardcover
Shigeo Shingo is truly one of the most under rated quality gurus out there. His methods and genius rank with Deming and Juran, but are much more easily applied. If you are interested in SMED, Constraint Management, Poka-Yoke or continuous improvement READ THIS BOOK

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very little new info. Other books also keep repeating same thing.
TPS From an Industrial Eng' Viewpoint and SMED are the only two Shingo books needed.
Everything else is repetition.
Update: 2/24/10. I just received Fundamentals Principles of Lean Manufacturing, by Shingo. It's a hard read due to the writing and labels Shingo placed on the lean tools, principles but, I think it's a very good book for the practitioner. Similar to OHNO's books; requires the student to do shop floor activity and capture their own learning. Then the book has more meaning and will help codify our own learning.
thanks to the publisher.
