Currently the manufacturing industry in Japan is said to be facing its most difficult time since the end of the Second World War. Our position as the industrial center of the world is now being challenged by international competition including growing Asian countries. Entering a phase of major change, our society, too, must cooperate with individuals from industry, government, and academia, in order to achieve our goal. For the time being, we will aim to organize and hold the 3rd Global Conference on Production and Operations Management in 2008 along with the enhancement of society activities and to meet the demands of a changing age. We highly recommend that all researchers, educators, and business practitioners and entrepreneurs involved in production and operations management take this opportunity to become members of our organization and make contributions to JSPM while maintaining, enhancing, and exercising your professional ability.
