Many North American kaizen events often lead to fork truck free environments in manufacturing according to Topper Industrial. Kaizen is Japanese for improvement and when used in the business sense and applied to the workplace, kaizen refers to activities that continuously improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers. Kaizen is a daily process; it goes beyond simple productivity improvement. It is also a process that humanizes the workplace, eliminates overly hard work, and teaches people how to perform experiments on their work using the scientific method and how to learn to spot and eliminate waste in business processes.
Successful implementation requires participation of workers in the improvement. People at all levels of an organization participate in kaizen, from the CEO to line laborers. Kaizen on a broad, cross-departmental scale in companies, generates total quality management, and frees human efforts through improving productivity using machines and computing power.
While kaizen may deliver small improvements, the culture of continual aligned small improvements and standardization yields large results in terms of overall improvement in productivity. In modern usage, it is designed to address a particular issue over the course of a week and is referred to as a “kaizen blitz” or “kaizen event.” A person who makes a large contribution in the successful implementation of kaizen during kaizen events is awarded the title of “Zenkai.”
