Masafumi Suzuki

Lean Management Intergrator

Masafumi Suzuki graduated from Kansai University, Osaka, with a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering. His career began with TRW Automotive in Japan as a Heat Treatment Manager, and it was during this illustrious 30-year tenure that he was introduced to the Toyota Production System (TPS).

Through the guidance of a Sensei from Toyota, driven with Suzuki san’s passion for Lean Management, he soon established himself as a dedicated TPS trainer for all TRW plants around the world.  After imparting Lean Production Philosophies for their sister plants in the Asian, North America, and Europe region, Suzuki san continued on to the TRW headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio. There, he spent 3 years implementing lean projects and providing support, before subsequently taking on the mantle of Managing Director.

With his recognized capability and reputation, Suzuki san then took on new challenges with Delphi Thermal Automotive Systems. He introduced and implemented the TPS concept to 10 of their plants in North America, initiating a consolidation project along with John Shook and James Womack. Between 2001 to 2005, these plants’ lead time was reduced from an average 10.2 days to <2 days, and their quality improved to 98% acceptance. Furthermore, this consolidation project successfully saved plant space by >85%, simultaneously reducing their inventory by >80% in WIP. This operation was later moved to Mexico where Toyota Motor Corporation awarded it as a Model Plant.

In the year 2007, Suzuki san set up his own company, Lean Land Laboratory Co. Ltd., a training and consultancy company specializing in introducing, training and implementing the TPS concept. Since collaborating with VA partners in 2014, numerous Malaysian SMEs have benefited from his extensive professional experience in building strong 5S and VSM foundations, both of which are key modules in TPS implementation. In complement to the training, he and VA partners, have also organised insightful Lean Study tours to Nagoya, the home of TPS.

Suzuki san believes that to successfully implement TPS, one must have a very strong foundation in 5S or TPM. Therefore, he dedicates much time in Kaizen training, Standardized Work training, Q-A Matrix and VSM training. It is his hope that with the Lean concept approach, SMEs in Malaysia will one day grow beyond their SME status.
