Y Factory Study on Lean Production Management

Yung-Chih Chen

Abstract


Taiwan's small to the medium-sized traditional manufacturing industry is generally believed to have flourished in the 1970s due to the encouragement of the government to promote turning family living rooms into factories. With the hardworking attitude, these small factories were able to accumulate tiny good results and to converge into a significant force. Gradually, these family factories began to grow stronger, and they tried desperately to increase their productivity. They began to follow the model of standardization and mass production. However, did everything possible to reduce costs and to improve international competitiveness? In the study, we used Y Factory as an example to figure out their difficulties and achievements.
