The TPS/Lean for construction site
TPS(Toyota Production System)/Lean is based on the philosophy of the complete elimination of all waste in pursuit of the most efficient methods.
The concept of TPS is also effective in the construction industry.
For construction company,The concept of TPS and its approach to cost reduction is effective to gain competitive strength.
About our TPS training center
The TPS traning center( Hirayama Training center) originally started from giving basic TPS operation training to employees assigned to work at Toyota Motors or group companies, and have been making remarkable output. Activities of the training center evolved and currently the main purpose lies in spreading TPS Kaizen method domestically and globally, supporting educational and training programs.Until present, more the 8,200 participants from 30 countries have attended.
The seismic standards were revised in 981, and currently, 75% of Japanese buildings are earthquake resistant, but are still improving to 90%.
Earthquake-resistance ＜ Vibration control ＜ Seismic isolation
In Japan, where there are many earthquakes, it has been reported that the performance of seismic isolation is higher than the other two for each major earthquake. (Although the cost of seismic isolation will of course be higher)
Recycling of construction waste
In Japan, the government and companies conducting business toward the realization of a sustainable society. It may be its mission to reduce waste and recycle and utilize it in Japan where the land is narrow and resources are scarce.
It is said that the final disposal of industrial waste is very difficult.
But in a Japan, Industrial Waste company are good at recycling it.
The Japanese construction industry is faces with a super aging society.
Until now, women and aging workers were not working at construction sites in Japan, but the construction industry is rapidly changing to workable systems. Foreign workers who have refused are also adding laws temporarily and actively adopting them.

About TPS and Lean
Nearly 30 years ago, Lean was presented as the generic version of TPS.
Actually, Lean was an interpretation of TPS – a rather poor interpretation.
Then, over time, Lean drifted farther away from TPS, thus making it far less of a generic version of TPS and more its own unique thing.
The lean production method is packaged even as a production management method, and a set of texts, checklists, and standards required for introduction is provided as a package from a consulting company.
TPS – Do you really understand what is waste? –
The basic philosophy of TPS(Toyota production system) is the reduce the manufacturing costs by removing complete all unnecessary (waste).
There are two basic ideas.
“jidoka” is not just automation.
“jidoka” (which can be loosely translated as “automation with a human touch”), as when a problem occurs, the equipment stops immediately, preventing defective products from being produced.
Avoid making defective products, rather than finding defective products by inspection.
Making only “what is needed, when it is needed, and in the amount needed”
Just-in-Time is a production method that responds to diversifying consumer needs. Even in small-lot production of many kinds, work in process can be eliminated, and production can be performed with less cost and in shorter time.
Etymology of Just-in-time
A word from Toyota Motor’s founder Kiichiro Toyoda: “Car parts are best collected just in time.”

Arakawa River Control
Rivers change greatly with the growth of the city.
A catastrophic flood occurred in Arakawa in 1910.
Fundamental flood control measures were planned through this flood, and dredging was completed over 28 years. Since then, straightening of the channel and strengthening of the embankment have been performed to this day.
Overnight: Tokyo | Breakfast, lunch

Tokyo Mokkoujou by SHIMIZU CORPORATION
A rich heritage of woodworking skills handed down since the days of temple and shrine carpenters.
Tokyo Mokkoujou Arts & Crafts Furnishings at Shimizu has refined and passed down traditional skilled techniques used by woodworkers since it opened in 1884.
About 80% of Japanese houses are wooden.
Japanese wooden architecture still uses traditional techniques.In order to fix the tree to the tree without screws and nails, cut the tree exactly and connect it with its part.
Wooden buildings are lighter than other materials, so they are less susceptible to earthquakes and can withstand a magnitude 7 earthquake.
