Visualization・Kaizen・Skill traditionI support strongly!
Work analysis and Kaizen tool software TimePrism is Kaizen support software used to perform work analysis by playing back on a PC video footage of work.
TimePrism was developed to allow anyone to perform Kaizen activities to efficiently find bottlenecks at the work site and developing improvement measures, through the use of videos of daily manufacturing operations.
TimePrism provides robust support of Kaizen activities, with the use of video making Kaizen procedures easy to understand even for novices in the absence of professional Kaizen managers.
TimePrism provides also full-fledged features allowing even Industrial Engineering (IE) experts to make full use of advanced capabilities.
TimePrism can be used to advantage in all kinds of industries, such as the automotive, electronics and electrical, machinery, metallurgical, food and chemical industries, as well as universities and the service industry. Further, it can be used by companies of any size, from large corporations to small and medium-sized companies. TimePrism is general-purpose software that can be deployed for a broad range of applications. Further, rounding out its integrated range of applications, TimePrism is provided with functions that allow it to be used effectively for standard work education and skill transmission based on information-rich video footage. TimePrism was developed based on the concept of an effective tool designed not only for work improvement, but also for quality stabilization and improvement, and further for gains in corporate trust and value.
TimePrism can yield even better results when it is used based on the principle of motion economy (※1), the four principles of ECRS (※2), and the five Why’s. Moreover, by using TimePrism as the basic tool for Gemba Kaizen, it is possible to cultivate Motion Mind (※3) sensitivity and strongly back up the creation of dynamic workplaces that overflow with Motion Mind.

※3 Motion Mind is
For example, if the time required to complete a given task differs according to the person, this may attributed to a difference in morals, but more than that, the time difference is often due to “differences in motion.” Motion Mind refers to the mental attitude of noticing such differences in motion and being ready to improve motions.
