Kaizen Redesigning the Manufacturing Process Abstract The purpose of the report is to analyze case study concept of Kaizen in manufacturing industries with main objective of how to increase productivity with high quality. At present, many manufacturing companies are facing problems such as high quality rejection, high inventories, high lead time, high costs of production, and inability to cope with customer orders. By implementing several methods like Six Sigma and practicing the lean production system many problems can be solved without employing high-tech and high-touch approaches but by involving people on the shop floor in Kaizen activities. In case study, I found that the application of process innovation basically can begin at companies to understand the deeper meaning of the term ‘process’ also, to begin to inspire the sense of managing from the point of view of process innovation and the philosophy of Kaizen in continuous improvement. Kaizen is one of the powerful tools of lean manufacturing. Overall , the main aim of this paper is discusses the implementation of Kaizen in manufacturing industry. 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
