Book Talk: Shopfloor Series

We sell a lot of new titles, but also many “backlist” titles. Today I thought I would talk about our Shopfloor series, which is not new, but has been a solid part of our offerings for many years.

This Shingo-prize-winning series of paperback books was conceived as a way of teaching lean concepts to workers on the shop floor through clearly written descriptions accompanied by illustrations. Each book focuses on a particular lean concept: 5S, TPM, identifying waste, mistake-proofing, cellular manufacturing, and so on.

The series has expanded over the years and now includes 16 books, though a few are variations on one topic. For example, we offer TPM for Every Operator, TPM Team Guide and TPM for Supervisors.

Some of these books are also part of learning packages. For example, we offer the Kaizen for the Shopfloor Learning Package, which includes five copies of the book, a leader’s guide, a laminated job aid, a copy of another book not in the series, and additional materials on a CD.

If you are looking for solid training materials that have endured over time, the Shopfloor series is a good place to start.

By the way, we are developing a similar series of books for the healthcare market. One of the first of these is 5S for Healthcare, scheduled for release later this year.

Do you have a question or comment about a book(s) that you would like addressed in Book Talk? Email me directly at Ralph.bernstein@taylorandfrancis.com.
