Basic Concept

The Shingo Model for the operational excellence is dependent on the systematic study of each initiative approaches. The model is based on the teaching of Dr. Shiego Shingo who identified the business improvement is possible through the clear understanding of the relationship between principles, tools and the systems. The approaches get over the tool which focuses on the guiding principles rather than the supporting key concepts revolved around them. As we can recognize the necessity of improvement, we will try to enable systems with better principle depending upon the behaviors. The Shingo house will provide an overview of all the guiding principles and the supporting concepts. If the entire concept can be taken as a whole, the principles can become the basis of creating a long term cultural excellence with the execution of fulfilling the mission of the business. The operational excellence cannot be only a single program; it is rather a set of tools in the new management system. It can be explained as the result of the enterprise behaviors depending on the correct principles.
