There are various targets for cost reduction. Therefore, we will pursue the lowest ultimate cost by promoting an appropriate cost reduction program according to the aim of cost reduction and the target cost.
In the case of labor costs, we aim to realize the lowest ultimate labor costs by making full use of programs such as labor productivity improvement, equipment productivity improvement, and production design based on IE (Industrial Engineering) at the factory.
In the case of externally purchased items such as raw materials and indirect materials, we aim to realize the lowest ultimate cost of externally purchased products by applying the program from both the unit price and the usage amount, such as the procurement cost reduction program from the viewpoint of unit price reduction and the yield improvement program from the viewpoint of usage amount reduction.
Also, regarding equipment procurement and construction procurement, we will apply a program that combines procurement cost reduction and execution budget management level up.
In the case of logistics costs, we will apply a program to reconstruct the logistics process, such as implementing 3PL and reviewing logistics bases, in addition to reducing logistics costs such as transportation and delivery costs and cargo handling costs.For factory indirect labor costs and sales costs, we aim to achieve lowest ultimate costs by applying programs that streamline operation
A new factory project is a great opportunity to reform the way of manufacturing itself.
In order to avoid mere reconstruction, JMAC believes that a consistent reform concept which means to draw up the desired goal at the early stages of consideration is important.
Starting from the production system reform concept、how can we achieve our goal by utilizing advanced technology for buildings/ facility and information systems.
As well as strengthening factory management such as daily improvement control and organization/human resources management which the overall design is the key to success.

How much room is there for cost reduction?
What is the productivity level of own factory compared to other companies?
Do you feel that there are more equipment failures and defects than other companies?
Don't know what to do for the often changes of production plans and having many inventories?
Do you feel that the vitality of employees is not accompanied?
Is the executive working well?
