What is monodzukuri?

Literally translated into "the making of things," monodzukuri or monozukuri is a word that incorporates the Japanese principles of industry, innovation, and pride in one's work. Monozukuri is used when describing the processes involved in technology and manufacturing, but the word itself conveys the sense of craftsmanship and pride that Japanese businesses and innovators take in their products.
