Raise Cost-Consciousness

Kyocera adopted an "Hourly Efficiency System" so that each Amoeba's performance would be clearly known to everyone. All employees should seriously contemplate how to improve their Amoeba's hourly efficiency, and implement new ideas.

Hourly efficiency awareness teaches us the importance of not wasting anything, even a pencil or a paper clip.

We must raise our profit consciousness to the point where raw materials spilled on the floor or defective products piled up in the corner begin to look like stacks of wasted money.
