 11/07/2021
By Dr. Alin Posteucă

The concept of Strategic KAIZEN plays a decisive role both in approaching the Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD) system and in the new Speed-Based Target Profit (SBTP) thinking paradigm.

”Achieving a long-term acceptable level of manufacturing profitability through productivity requires the total commitment of management teams and all staff in any manufacturing company and beyond.

Awareness and continuous improvement of manufacturing costs behind losses and waste is the core goal of the Manufacturing Cost Policy Deployment (MCPD). Achieving this goal will continuously uncover the hidden reserves of profitability through a harmonious transformation of the manufacturing flow, coordinated by the continuous need to improve manufacturing costs. Setting annual targets and means for manufacturing costs improvement (more exactly for costs of losses and waste, and the exact fulfillment of these) requires mobilization of all people in the company to carry out systematic improvement activities (KAIZEN) and systemic improvement actions (KAIKAKU) of the processes of each product family cost. ”
