Jon, I believe that the Japanese manufacturing facility philosophy is vastly different. We have lots of Japanese plants around here (automotive), and some of them actually send employees to Japan to learn the system. A lot of the manufacturing philosophy is based on "quality" and "teamwork."
I personally worked for the Brits and the French, and we communicated with Americans, Swiss and Germans. The French were the only ones I never care to communicate with again. Everything was more difficult than it should have been.
