Finally, Ford was on-‐going basis, they provide straining, successful than General Motors in all areas and materials and supervision for staffs to increase raised dramatically the adoption of lean or m aintain their ability. manufacturing practice in the U.S. manufacturing industry.
BOOK Review The Machine That Changed the World is a well-written book that highlights comparisons and contrasts among automobile manufacturers. The book is written for a general audience interested in the topic of automobile production. A chronological history We find this book interesting of global automotive development and and quite closely linked to manufacture, from the industrial revolution to the issues discussed in this the present, provides many useful insights to installment of Victorious the technology educator. Among the most Secret as this is the book that made the term lean important of these insights are discussions of production known the origins and future of manufacturing worldwide. technology. The book identifies "lean production" as a technology that is reshaping automobile manufacturing. While lean production may have originated in Japan under the concept of shared destiny, the authors emphasize that it is no longer confined to Japan. The book provides useful insights into integrated product design, supply, distribution, manufacturing, accounting, marketing, management, and concurrency, a fact which makes it particularly appealing to students Authors: working on an essay or academics looking for a well-structured, well-developed piece of James P.
