On February 25th, an article was published on logistics newspaper of Nihon Butsuryu Shinbun newspaper for visualization skills and defect analysis entitled ‘Winning the Germany Industrial revolution with Knowledge IT’. Indeed, I am confident that the era will come when we innovate and go forward and Japan will be leading the world as a manufacturing leader in the world. To that end, it is inevitable to change existing thinking and mechanism. It is an era where defects (recall) measures /Quality control is the corporate life lines. I think that it is important for next generation management and executives to reform with courage. There is a sense of resistance to bringing databases, information sharing and communication means such as ICT / network, which is not to be started in Japan’s manufacturing down to the site, but let’s make reforms with the spirit of “Beat the system”.
