Twenty-five years ago, Utah State University organized an awards program designed to promote and recognize excellent manufacturing organizations throughout the United States. Known as The Shigeo Shingo Prizes for Excellence in Manufacturing, the awards were named for Japanese industrial engineer Shigeo Shingo. The same year the awards were created, Shingo received an honorary doctorate from Utah State University for having distinguished himself as one of the world’s thought leaders in operational excellence.
