    Abstract

    In this paper, focusing on visual management (VM) technology as an effective vehicle of continuous improvement activities, Kaizen case-base and its effectiveness are discussed by following three steps. For the first step, a framework of a Kaizen case transfer is placed to develop for effective VM development and transfer. For the second step, an example of VM case-base is constructed by using VM cases collected through a literature survey and factory investigations. For the third step, performance of the example VM case-base is validated by applying the proposed procedure, which consists of: (1) clarifying instances of current Kaizen problem; (2) retrieving Kaizen case-base by using established instances to detect applicable Kaizen cases; (3) developing suitable Kaizen cases to solve the current problem effectively; (4) applying suitable Kaizen cases to the current problem; and. (5) registering applied Kaizen cases for the current problem in Kaizen case-base, instances of it being clarified.
