PeopleFlo Manufacturing Featured in Toyota Product Development Book

PeopleFlo Manufacturing, a Chicago-based manufacturer of EnviroGear® sealless gear pumps, is featured in a new book entitled The Toyota Product Development System. (Morgan, James M. and Liker, Jeffrey K. 2006).

The Toyota Product Development System is the first book that provides a comprehensive account of the world-renownd methods used by Toyota to develop products in less time and with fewer resources.  The appendix of this book entitled Applying Value Stream Mapping to a Product Development Process: The PeopleFlo Manufacturing Inc. Case, highlights PeopleFlo’s innovative application of the value stream mapping tool to improve product development.  PeopleFlo used this tool to manage the design and launch of the EnviroGear sealless gear pump. In addition, this tool made problems visual, and as a result, drove the learning process.
