Read This Perfect Book,
This review is from: Machine That Changed the World: The Story of Lean Production (Paperback)
Perfect description and analysis of the auto industry and lean production.
I am studying the Operations Management in the university, and this book is in the reading list of the module of Manufacturing Strategy. I spent 4 days to finish it, because I found it was better than the textbook I used----more profound, more in detail, and more interesting for me to read through it. I learn a lot from it that can't be learned from the testbooks.
Maybe the only regret is this book was writen in 1990, so the author can not say something later than that year, which changed a lot since 1990. I hope that I can read the new book concerning the change since 1990, which I think should be published in the year 2005.
