I thought the term was MUDA? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.129.121.8 (talkcontribs) 16:59, 25 June 2007

  • I second this. The term should be defined. It has shaky notability as it is. 209.6.120.254 (talk) 00:54, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Is it just me, or does the phrase: "Toyota merely picked up these three words with prefix mu-, which every Japanese know, as product improvement program or campaign" seem slightly emotive? While it may be so (that every Japanese person understands these concepts as part of their every day life, and that Toyta possibly just 'jumped on the bandwagon' and used the catchphrases as part of their improvement systems), I'm not sure this sentence is appropriate or encyclopedic. Can we delete it?
