"I, for one, am in awe of Ford's greatness. I believe Ford was a born rationalist -- and I feel more so every time I read his writings. He had a deliberate and scientific way of thinking about industry in America. For example, on the issues of standardization and the nature of waste in business, Ford's perception of things was orthodox and universal."
Taiichi Ohno, in Toyota Production System 06/01/04
"A Pioneer in Continuous Flow Manufacturing, Henry Ford took care to limit the amount of inventory on his shop floor to the one shift's worth. He surrounded himself with reliable suppliers, many on his own property, making his assembly operation close to self-sufficient. And considering Ford expected only a 33-hour lapse between the mining of iron ore and the production of a car from the metal from that ore, he might rightly be called the Father of Just-In-Time (JIT)."
"Today and Tomorrow is timeless. Within its pages, we find Henry Ford's philosophy of lean manufacturing -- the roots of today's Ford Production System."
James J. Padilla, Group Vice President, Ford North America 06/01/04
" It is extremely interesting to read Henry Ford's original work. Ford discusses topics that are just as relevant today as they were in the 1920s."

The impacts of Ford's principles on business, the economy, social ramifications, and more are profound. The ideas, thought processes, and applications are expressed well and we can learn from these today. Too bad much of the rest of American business lost sight of Ford's techniques as they became enamored with scientific formulae like EOQ (economic order quantities) without questioning the assumptions.
A controversial figure in history? Yes, but extremely relevant ideas even today.

ich war mit dem Buch nicht zufrieden. Klar - ein Buch, das ein gewisses Alter hat und quasi nicht aus unserer Zeit ist kann auch anders geschrieben sein, aber dieses Buch gefällt mir auf Grund des Schreibstils gar nicht. Es ist wohl eher etwas für andere Leute - nicht für mich.
