The Power of Kaizen

THE POWER OF KAIZEN The Japanese philosophy of kaizen, which encapsulates a culture of constant improvement, is a powerful force in the business world. Kaizen asks employees to question what they are doing in order to find new and better ways of doing things. It could mean creating a component using fewer materials, changing a production layout to boost efficiency, or finding a new approach to solving a challenge. Small changes add up to big gains. And these result in a faster, leaner and more efficient world of shorter production times, lower inventory levels and reduced costs. In today’s fast-changing world, manufacturers in every industry need to adopt a mindset that enables them to react quickly, intelligently and creatively to an evolving market. This is kaizen at work. This short video explores the spirit of kaizen and explains just why it is so good for business.    To read…

MHI to launch world’s largest offshore wind turbine by 2020

MHI to launch world’s largest offshore wind turbine by 2020 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is working on an offshore wind turbine with an output of 10MW, two megawatts more than the present record holder, according to a report in the Nikkei Asian Review. The Japanese engineer hopes to gain a larger share of the global offshore wind power market, which is expected to grow a 16% a year, expanding six times by 2030, thanks in large part to the growth of the nascent US industry. The turbine will be developed by MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, a joint venture between Mitsubishi Heavy and Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems. Mitsubishi hopes to bring its machine to market by 2020, ahead of rival projects being developed by General Electric and Siemens. Mitsubishi and Vestas have already developed a 9.5MW version, and has received orders for more than 260 of them. The largest offshore turbine currently in operation, however, is MHI…

LAUNCH SERVICES: BRINGING THE FUTURE TO OUTER SPACE

Based on the Technology for Manufacturing Rockets, MHI Supports Research and Observations of Outer Space Technologies developed in space is now very much a part of everyday lives. For example, satellites are instrumental in forecasting weather, monitoring disasters, and observing the global environment, and people on the Earth benefit greatly through having unmanned supply spacecraft* transport essential materials to the International Space Station (ISS). MHI is one of only a few companies involved in launch programs, from manufacturing to the launching of the rocket — a critical component for space transport. This article examines how MHI accurately delivers a customer’s payload to a target orbit on a target date and time. *The HTV unmanned supply spacecraft, known as “KOUNOTORI,” was independently developed in Japan to transport cargo to the ISS and is carried aloft by the H-IIB launch vehicle.   To read the full article, please click here. Please note, you’ll…
