Sumi-Riko Yamagata, the Mother Plant for General-Purpose Anti-Vibration Rubber Products 减震橡胶通用产品的母工厂“住理工山形”

Other bases

My next inspection after Matsusaka Plant was Sumi-Riko Yamagata located in Yonezawa City, Yamagata Prefecture.
However, since we are now in the midst of the corona pandemic, I consulted with the secretariat and decided to conduct our first web visit.
Thanks to prior coordination by the secretariat, we were able to understand what was being reported, even on the remote inspection, and were able to see both the documents and the field on two different screens.
In the future, depending on our ingenuity and communication capacity, I thought it might be possible to have WEB inspections also for overseas bases .
But when I go to a factories, I’m so concerned about all kinds of things that I see there, so I often don’t follow the schedule made by the secretariat, and I start talking to people in the worksite each time.
That, unfortunately, is not possible on the web.
Therefore, next time I will definitely go to Yamagata!

继松阪事业所之后,我视察了位于山形县米泽市的住理工山形。
但鉴于目前新冠疫情的状况,在与事务局商谈之后决定进行首次WEB视察。
得益于事务局的事先调整,即使是通过WEB,也非常直观地了解了报告内容,并通过两个画面确认到了资料和现场情况。
在找到合适的方法和保证通信容量的前提下,我想今后也许可以实现海外的WEB视察。
只是如果去工厂的话可以关注到方方面面,也可以跟现场的各位员工直接交流。
非常遗憾,这些通过WEB无法实现。
下次一定要亲自去一趟山形。

Regarding Sumi-Riko Yamagata  关于住理工山形

Sumi-Riko Yamagata is a new plant, which was established in 2015 and started operation in 2016.
They manufacture automotive anti-vibration rubber, which is essential for safe and comfortable driving of automobiles.
They supply products quickly in response to customers’ orders from “northern Kanto” to  “Tohoku” area.
In the Automotive Anti-Vibration Rubber business, Komaki Plant is the mother factory for mechanized and automated manufacturing.
On the other hand, Summit Riko Yamagata is positioned as the mother plant for general-purpose products, which require many manual processes.
The Group’s production bases are spread out globally, and there are many plants in Asia and South America that manufacture general-purpose products.
Sumi- Riko Yamagata’s role is to develop unified manufacturing know-how in order to reduce quality variations between locations.

住理工山形是一个全新的工厂,于2015年设立、2016年开始运营,主要生产汽车用减震橡胶。
它在汽车的安全、舒适行驶中不可或缺。
住理工山形广泛接受从北关东到东北的客户订单并迅速提供产品。
在汽车用减震橡胶业务中,已实现机械化、自动化生产的母工厂是小牧制作所。
而住理工山形的定位是需要借助人手工序较多的“通用产品”的母工厂。
本集团的生产据点广泛分布于全球各地,亚洲和南美洲也有很多通用产品的生产工厂。
为了抑制各据点质量参差不齐的状况,住理工山形担任着开展统一生产技术的职责。

What I told them that day  当日所传达之事

I could clearly see that Sumi-Riko Yamagata has been proceeding Kaizen(improvement),being aware that they are a global mother plant even within the Automotive Anti-Vibration Business Headquarters,
In addition, I conveyed the following two points;
(1) I would like them to share the Kaizen cases quickly across the world’s plants.
(2) At that time, I hope that Sumi-Riko Yamagata will always continue to make further Kaizen and stay one step ahead of other plants.

As is often said, “There is No End in Kaizen activities.” I would like to see everyone to be aware of this philosophy once again and come up with Kaizen ideas together.
Of course, this is a request not only to Sumi-RikoYamagata, but to all executives and employees in our group.
Let’s work together to recover in the second half of the year.

我充分了解到住理工山形在减震事业本部之中拥有作为全球母工厂的意识,并在全力推进改善。
在此基础上,我传达了以下两点。
①希望改善事例可以迅速在世界各地的工厂中横向覆盖。
②另外,希望届时住理工山形可以进一步致力于各项改善,始终做业内的先驱者。

虽然是老生常谈,还是希望各位能够再次认识到“改善无止境”,大家齐心协力,集思广益。
当然,这不仅是对住理工山形,也是对全体役员、全体员工的期望。
为了挽回下半期的业绩,大家一起加油吧。
