The literal Japanese translation is « Workshop management »; « Gemba (現場) » = Workshop, « Kanri(管理) » = Management.
« Workshop management » means managing a process and the production result.
The process is made up of Manpower, Machinery, Materials, Methods, and Location.
The result comes from the Volume of production or Productivity, Quality, Cost, Deadline, Safety/Environment and Motivation.
The workforce of the workshop must manage all this.
A complete module is dedicated to the mastery of the workshop: « The Proximity Manager: how to strengthen your middle management ».
