This kaizen idea suggestion form is a simple one-page template you can used as part of a formal suggestion program or to document and record specific improvements made as part of your continuous improvement program.
This particular kaizen was a result of a dialog with a reluctant machine operator on what it would take for him to support one piece (one set) flow efforts of his downstream customer, final assembly. The reasons why he couldn't possibly support small lot production became the root causes addressed in this kaizen which was a simple effort to equip that machine with the changeover tools and tooling on a dedicated cart. No more scrounging and swiping the tools needed to do his job.
There are certainly both simpler and more sophisticated templates for collecting or summarizing kaizen ideas. This one works pretty well.Comments are moderated to filter spam and inappropriate content. There may be a delay before your comment is published.
