I'm thinking of phrases to replace the one we are avoiding this month...
Contiunously Improving Operation, Rational Manufacturing, Intelligent Operations, Smart Production, Holistic Production, Adaptive Manufacturing, Non-local Optimization, Nimble Manufacturing, Organic Manufacturing, Demand Supply Execution, Flow Production, Customer Vectored Operation, Sane Management, Clear Stream System, Visualized Production, Operational Synchronization, Flexible Yet Rigorous Operations, People Process System, Streamlined Production, Harmonious Manufacturing, Full Day's Work, Linked Reflex System, Dynamic Positive Operation, Superlative Production System
...and this is probably a hollow exercise since all words are descriptions from a point of view, and all points of views are partial by nature.
So for now we will have to make do with the pair of "respect for people" and the 6-letter word "kaizen" which insures that whatever system you are describing it will be better than the last time you viewed it.Comments are moderated to filter spam and inappropriate content.
