We are happy that our products can help in the world and grateful that we are given the opportunity to make them.
Quality is quite different in products made by a craftsman with high resourcefulness and a craftsman with low resourcefulness.
We are doing various activities in order to raise resourcefulness. We have been doing an environmental improvement (3S activity), a study group for personality formation, a drawing study group to improve technical capabilities and a participation of welding competition.
Recently, we not only accept business, but also regularly hold on a product development conference (Only 1 labo). In the future, we are heading toward realization of our dream to be the main business.
Sales activities have been also changing. Previously, it was a “sales inquiry” type of sales, but now we are thinking about how we can responsive customer’s problem through “proposal-based sales for problem solving”.
In addition, we support VA proposal (* 1), QC activities (* 2) and QCD (* 3).
* 1: VA proposal is an activity to make proposals that can enhance competitiveness. We have been considering improvement in productivity, material cost, transportation cost, management fee etc. Once a month, each department (technology, sales, planning, procurement gathers) will exchanges opinions.
* 2: QC activity (quality control) is the activity to manage and improve the work process to make the quality first product.
* 3: QCD is Q (quality, quality) C (cost, price) D (delivery, delivery date). We will improve customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction by raising these three qualities, reducing costs and meeting delivery deadlines.
Organization capability is necessary to respond to customer’s request. In order to raise its organizational capability, we think that it is important to improve the ventilation of the organization and create opportunities for communication beyond departments and hierarchical relationships.
For example, there are a ceremonial dinner with the president and the boss, a BBQ, a year-end party, bowling competitions, softball competitions, a fishing at Lake Biwa, a marathon and more. We are planning a commemorative trip to our 50th anniversary.
If the parent who came home from work got tired, he say nasty things about their boss, subordinate and client. If you were doing such a figure, what do you think about it?
I definitely don’t want to do such a company.
My parents who came back from work say the story of a fun job or workplace with a smile. My child tells I want to work at my father’s company. Among them, parents and young generations may work in the same workplace ….
