Gemba Kaizen

Be ready for the factory improvement process!

Does Kaizen (continuous improvement) activities at the factory meet your expectations?

  1. “You want to implement Kaizen at the workplace, but do not know where to begin, what to improve and how to do it.”
  2. “The factory is now implementing Kaizen tools and techniques, yet the efficiency does not come up to your expectation."
  3. “The improvement process is usually attractive at first sight, then present so fleetingly as barely to exist.”

This is a hard-to-solve problem that most of Japanese factories operating in Vietnam as well as those domestic are now facing. From the experience of contacting and interviewing some factory managers, the fact-finding survey and some executed training courses, we believes that the two below factors are the main reasons: 

  • Factory leaders, in fact, do not fully understand the process of “Factory Kaizen”. 
  • The foundation knowledge is not efficiently implanted. 
Ex: In factory, 5S (Sorting–Straightening–Shining–Standardizing–Self-discipline) is the most fundamental knowledge. However, factory leaders seem to understand it literally instead of the real meanings and ways to conduct it.

The training course “Gemba-Kaizen” will equip factory leaders with fundamental understanding regarding the real application of kaizen activities to the workplace.
