5 AXES

The 5 AXES correspond to our management policy. The 5 AXES are five basic principles for delivering satisfaction to our customers. These are: 1) total quality, 2) constant innovation, 3) supplier integration, 4) production system, and 5) involvement of personnel. Organically linking each of these functions enables us to supply the highest quality products, which results in satisfaction to customers. This, in turn, results in profit and the cycle continues. This is the Ichikoh-Valeo Group’s unique management policy.

The QRQC Concept

QRQC underpins the everyday conduct and actions of ICHIKOH employees. QRQC involves problem detection, issuing appropriate instructions, problem analysis, and the immediate solving of the problem and preventing its reoccurrence. QRQC is a concept rather than a series of activities, as explained in the chart below. For example, how many problems did you personally detect today? What did you improve yesterday? This represents the ability to detect. Has the issue been carefully analyzed, and have appropriate instructions been issued? This represents the ability to communicate. One of the abilities of a true leader is to be able to issue detailed instructions. The ability to analyze is the ability to compare and analyze the good and the bad. And finally, to prevent the problem from reoccurring, QRQC includes LLC, the ability to learn. The QRQC cycle is applied everyday, all day, not only to the manufacturing site, but to the management and administrative divisions, to ensure that any problems and issues are solved immediately.

SAN-GEN SHUGI

San-gen-shugi represents ICHIKOH’s code of conduct in which our entire operations are examined from the perspective of genba, genbutsu and genjitsu. Genba refers to the exact time and place that the problem occurred, genbutsu refers to the examination and evaluation of good and bad parts, while genjitsu refers to the real facts accompanied by data.

「三現主義」それは、私達市光の行動規範です。 現場-問題が発生したその瞬間と、その場所。 現物-良品、不良品を現物で比較。 現実-データに基づいた真実。
