Accompany the world’s greatest consultant as he analyzes manufacturing processes in 1990 at an AT&T Facility. This is the only documented footage that shows Dr. Shingo on the shop floor addressing quality and defects in his customary straightforward and often humorous manner. We have enhanced the raw VHS footage to provide the clearest image and sound as possible and added subtitles to reinforce key points.
Some of the topics covered by Dr. Shingo include:
- Mistake Proofing, Poka Yoke
- Goal of Zero Defects
- Fundamentals of Automation, Jidoka
- The final chapter features a Question & Answer session with Dr. Shingo
In cooperation with Norman Bodek, Enna is proud to present the first of three exclusive videos that highlight the methods used by the inventor of the Scientific Thinking Mechanism.

The insights gained from these videos will fuel your internal drive to champion Lean Manufacturing.
