Shingijutsu Global Consulting at a Glance
- Our Approach

Shingijutsu Global Consulting is a specialized consulting firm focusing on improving the efficiency of manufacturing, logistical systems, and other business operations (known as Kaizen, or lean operation). Shingijutsu Global Consulting effectively combines a client's people, materials, facilities, and information through a concept we call the Shingijutsu Global Consulting Production System (SGC-PS). The SGC-PS is Shingijutsu Global Consulting's Kaizen technology based on the Just-In-Time (JIT) methodology originally developed by Toyota (well-known as the Kanban system).
To remain competitive in the world marketplace, it is imperative that a company be able to respond quickly to various market demands, such as short lead-times, greater variety of products in lower quantities, price pressure, etc. Shingijutsu Global Consulting first assists clients in identifying areas for improvement in all aspects of their business, then leads them through the process of implementing our methods to achieve their efficiency goals. Our clients receive the full benefit of our combined expertise and experience in Kaizen technology, developed and accumulated through long-term relationships with world-class manufacturing companies such as Boeing, Porsche, and Pratt & Whitney.
Shingijutsu Global Consulting creates a unique lean production system tailored to each client's specific requirements, always based on the SGC-PS. The goal is to enable clients to identify their problem areas, develop strategies to improve them, and to education and train their employees in the practice of Kaizen in the workplace. We support the manufacturing, logistics, and service industries through on-site consultation and seminars.
Shingijutsu Global Consulting's consultants work with the client's staff to continuously assess and restructure the company's operational systems to improve efficiency and profitability. Since the company's employees are an integral part of the improvement process, Shingijutsu Global Consulting expects the client to return 30% of the profits it gains through implementing Kaizen to its employees.

Our History

Mobirise

In 1987, Shingijutsu was formed in Nagoya, Japan. The founder, Yoshiki Iwata, was an original member of the Toyota Autonomous Study Group (a project team comprised of Toyota's suppliers). This Study Group first developed Toyota's lean production practices (the Kaizen system). The study activities enabled Mr. Iwata to contribute in establishing the Toyota Production System (TPS) as a primary pupil of Mr. Taiichi Ohno (an originator of the TPS concept). After his long career as a Toyoda Gosei plant manager, Mr. Iwata founded Shingijutsu in order to promote this Kaizen system throughout the world. Despite being a start-up company, Shingijutsu was soon engaged to provide consulting by such world-class companies as Yamatake Corp (Azbil)., Isuzu Motor Ltd., and Showa Tekko Mfg. Co. Shingijutsu brought the Kaizen system to a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, and printing. Shingijutsu provided consulting to about 160 clients worldwide at more than 600 sites, from manufacturing sites to logistics and service industries, such as maintenance, security, consulting companies, and hospitals.

In January 1996, The New York Times published a full two-page article describing Mr. Iwata's contribution to the rehabilitation of the German sports-car manufacturer, Porsche. Porsche had asked Shingijutsu for consulting services after the company lost 240 million Marks in July 1993. Porsche's product line-up hinders straight production because the company produces few units of many different models of cars. The beneficial effects of the Kaizen were quickly and dramatically apparent: daily production increased from 40 to 80 vehicles. In 1995, Porsche successfully returned to profitability by implementing the Kaizen methodology that Shingijutsu had proposed.

Yoshiki Iwata passed away in 2001, and differing visions of the future of Shingijutsu in 2003 and about its marketing strategy arose within Shingijutsu. At that time, Mr. Iwata's daughter, Kumi Iwata Otake, along with Senji Niwa, Takeshi Iwata and other senior consultants, decided to form a new company, Shingijutsu Global Consulting Co., in order to preserve and develop Yoshiki Iwata's original business concept.

In 2004, SGC opened a U.S. subsidiary called Shingijutsu Global Consulting in Bellevue, WA to better serve clients worldwide. We established new entity in India in 2011, and expand Kaizen consultation services to the companies all over the world.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC USERS SAY

2015 Learn True Lean from KAIZEN Pioneer - Annually each Autumn

THE TOYOTA PRODUCTION SYSTEM IN NORTH AMERICA, This past November I was invited to give a presentation on my book, THE LEAN TURNAROUND, at a lean seminar hosted by Shingijutsu Global Consulting in Jackson, TN. This was a working seminar that included a couple of very impressive plant tours of the North American plants of one of Toyota's subsidiary companies. The participants were very enthusiastic about what they heard and saw during the seminar and as a result it was a pleasure to talk with them and answer all their questions. As a long time practitioner of the Toyota Production System and lean it was nice to see that, with the help of experts like Shingijutsu, lean is alive, well and growing in the US.

The First Kaizen Promotion Office Director of Boeing

Without Shingijutsu’s consulting Boeing would have never been able to roll out the 10,000th 737. I know because I was there. I was instrumental in getting 1700 Boeing managers to Japan to attend Shingijutsu training and the results have put Boeing at the forefront of commercial airplane production in the world. Shingijutsu was key in putting in place a moving assembly line initiated in 1997. BOEING Managers’ trips to Japan to study the Toyota Production System and the technical advice of our Shingijutsu Sensei’s and made it all happen.

Free seminar on Kanban Operation and Heijunka Production in Toulouse, France

The seminar on Kanban Operation and Heijunka Production was very well received by the audience. The simulations made the techniques, principles, and applications very easy to understand. I left the simulation with a very good understanding of Kanban types, material and information flows, and Heijunka scheduling. The presenters, Iwata-san and Koide-san were excellent. I would recommend this seminar for any level of lean practitioner or anyone looking to apply lean production techniques to their business.

The Textron Executive Tour

I found the Shingijutsu Japan Lean Tour to be an excellent way to see Lean principles in motion. From complex to simple assembly, the factory tours unlocked the mysteries of the Toyota Production System and provided me with numerous outstanding examples of shop floor applications. The tours were complimented with experienced consultants and guides that were very knowledgeable in all the principles of Lean. Face to face meetings with senior company executives provided our group with an opportunity to ask questions about their lean journey and the secrets of successful implementation of Lean principles. Overall, the seminar is a must for senior executives responsible for leading a Lean transformation in their respective companies.

The Textron Executive Tour

The tour was very enlightening and interesting to be thrust into the middle of a culture that is so totally devoted to the Lean philosophy and business system. Training in Kaizen and Toyota Production System are the heart of the company’s strategy. The goal is zero defects. For us, the ideas of identifying defects at the source prior to sending a transaction forward are most useful. Mistakes must be found at the point of origin and not passed on down the line. Quality has to be pursued along every link of the supply chain, with active cooperation from everyone, from suppliers to the front line employee.

Kaizen Study Mission

Hi. This experience with SGC has been great so far. I mean we’ve learned a lot.
It’s really good team that we got chance to work with.
And the in-class sessions with Yokoo san have been very very good, because it is the first experience of TPS.
And also the activity plans to learn (to teach us) about TPS system hands-on was very very helpful, because we are doing Kaizen and we’re really learning how to apply what we’ve learned in class. So that was fantastic. And lastly the tour has been amazing to see where exactly we can get to, if we apply TPS, even partially tour system to be able to grow into and get closer to some of these places that we’ve seen. So overall, I would definitely say that it’s exceeded my expectation.
I’m glad I came here today. Thank you.
