Dr. Marksberry looks at TPS in the context of organizational behavior, social sciences, management science, and engineering sciences. He presents new insights into how the elements of TPS work together as a system across an organization. Both scholars and practitioners of TPS and Lean Manufacturing will find this book to be thought provoking and revealing about how successful TPS operates. -Larry Holloway, Professor and Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Kentucky
