Abstract: The Toyota Production System (TPS) was adopted by the confectionery factory of Baikodo. The present paper describes changes in the TPS-based production at the factory during the period of improvement activity. Since the process of packing is a labor-intensive task, it had a significant influence on the productivity of the factory. The results suggest that streamlining the production of confectionery is essential to improve the productivity of factories. The paper describes changes in the process of packing caused by its streamlining. There was a significant improvement in the productivity during the above-mentioned period.

 上記の内容で2nd ICPMで発表しました。日本生産管理学会が主体となり現地のAthabasca UniversityやTOYOTA MOTOR MANUFACTURNG、Westin Hotel、 中華人民共和国、韓国などの60人を超える参加が有りました。
 CalgaryではWinchell Lake の天然ガスポンプ場、ものづくり博物館を見学し、Toronto近郊のCambridgeのトヨタ モーター カナダの工場を見学しました。日本の食品工場にはまだまだ改善すべき点が沢山残っている事を実感しました。
