Continuous Improvement

​At Nissha Medical Technologies, employees are committed to the journey of reducing muda (waste), increasing quality, and creating standardization at every turn.  Nissha follows a lean roadmap designed to bring standardization to the daily process by creating continuous flow that visually highlights any abnormalities.  This, tied to the culture of stopping to fix abnormalities in real time, ensures sustainability of continuous improvement.

NMT had adopted the practice of Gemba Kaizen. Gemba is a Japanese word meaning “the actual place” where Kaizen reflects "improvement." In lean practices, Gemba Kaizen refers to “the place where value is created” or the concept of continuous improvement.
