A year ago, I decided to have fun and created these small banners based on the sayings of Taiichi Ohno, the father of the Toyota Production System (TPS) and Just-In-Time (JIT). I found that his sayings were accurate and still effective in these days.
There are other sayings that I haven’t created a banner yet just as “We can never say that the standard operations we now have are the best, and there is no room for further improvement.”
Today, many companies have different systems to maintain, with different languages, programming styles, structures, and business logics. Some projects were developed by their department, others were inherited from other departments, and some come from third parties. The issue goes on the lack of standardization in many companies when dealing with these projects and the lack of enforcement of such standardization. We can standardize the way we code and write documentation. A good start would be to use or create a framework in which base our future projects so we focus on only building self-contained plugins using existent programming patterns.
