Introducing Gemba Process Innovation

Companies are facing massive disruption in their production sites and supply chains triggered by a whole range of emerging trends and technologies. Social trends such as worker shortages and lifestyle changes; and technological advances such as artificial intelligence, intelligent edge devices, and the explosion of e-commerce.

Faced with this rapidly shifting landscape, companies need to optimise the flow of information from things and people at their operational fronts. Gemba is the physical site where these things happen. This Japanese word literally translates to "the actual place".

For instance, in supply chain management, the gemba is where things are made, moved, or sold; the site where value is generated and problems must be confronted. The factory floor, the warehouse, or point s-of -sale; these are referred to as the gemba.

Each has their own unique processes and goals, but also their own peculiar challenges. However, the question on the minds of managers of all these "operational fronts" is the same:

How to innovate and optimise in the face of rapidly changing conditions and customer needs?

These developments are not just affecting manufacturers and retailers, but also the logistics industry, which all face pressure to revolutionise their processes. All these industries know technology can give them greater clarity, simplicity and efficiency. But the pathway to this evolution is not always clear or well-trodden.

Through its Gemba Process Innovation offering, Panasonic’s goal is to provide that know-how and become a trusted total integrator for clients.

Gemba Process Innovation can drive the next wave of business innovation in Europe
