when CEO Wiedeking brought Shingijutsu, a company specializing in manufacturing efficiency, into Porsche to help implement the Kaizen philosophy, things began to change at Zuffenhausen...for the better. 

and if you thought this meant the complete robotization of building Porsches, you thought wrong. this video demonstrates how the Japanese system helped increase efficiency and productivity leaving certain facets of human craftsmanship and hand building intact.

the soul of Porsche manufacturing was left undisturbed.

here's a brief quote of what Shingijutsu is about--

"Shingijutsu was started in 1987 by some of the pioneers of the widely praised Toyota Production System. Since its inception, Shingijutsu has quietly and effectively led many companies on very successful transformations by harmonizing quality, quantity and timing."
