The Kaizen approach combines the PDCA Cycle, the 5S Concept, the 8W’s, the Kanban system and many more optimization concepts to reach the highest level of quality improvement.
Kaizen originates from the Japanese culture and can be translated as “change is good.” Its focus is a gradual improvement of all departments in a company such as the development, production, marketing and distribution divisions. Thanks to qualified employees and an overall cooperation of all participants, a continuous optimization takes place and the goal is a never-ending process striving to reach perfection.
The Kaizen Umbrella summarizes many principles of quality improvement such as customer orientation, total quality control (TQC), robotics, QC circles, suggestion systems, automation, work discipline, Kanban, quality improvements, Just-in-Time (JIT), zero defects, small-group activities, cooperative labor-management relations, productivity improvements and new product developments.
