• Kaizen is the Japanese term which means better change.
• “Kai” is change and “zen” is good.
• Kaizen was first introduced to the West by Masaaki Imai in
his book: The Key’s to Japan’s competitive success in 1986.
• It is known worldwide due to significant pillar of an
organization’s long-term competitive strategy.
• The concept of Kaizen consists of wide range of ideas,
which include making the environment more efficient and
effective by creating team, ensuring employee a
satisfaction and making a job more fulfilling and safer.
• This study is conducted in order to improve the environment
quality which will contribute to a satisfaction of the road user.
• The scope of area has been selected to a small scale in UiTM
Shah Alam.
• The study is based on flood, so the area of UiTM to be
conducted is near Unit Kesihatan and the nearby road, Jalan
Ilmu is said to be the one of the most frequent that flood
• In this study, irrigation system is also taken into account.

To apply the To understand

To understand the
social, environment fundamental more on Kaizen
and economical knowledge of approach
implications of GIS. GIS. techniques.

Study area
 The study focusing on the area in UiTM Shah Alam which
tend to flood during heavy rain.
 The area of study is at UiTM Shah Alam, gate section 7.
 Urban activities also caused this area becoming sensitive
short duration with high intensity rainfall that lead to flash
flood (2 to 5 hours).

Safety is the state of being “safe”, the condition of being protected from harm or
other non-desirable outcomes.
Safety can also refer detonate something designed to prevent injury or damage

Comfortability is known as a sense of physical mental comfort, support, ease and
freedom from pain or constraint
A degree of psychological comfort can be achieved by recreating experiences
that are associated with pleasant memories

Study Area Data
1. Location of Study Area

Identify the selected location of study area to be use as

base map (Raster Data)
2. Georeferencing
i) Identify the reference points
ii) Record the coordinates (Vector Data)
iii) Selecting the Spatial Reference
iv) Import data to ArcMap
v) Georeferencing – add control points
i) Identify the reference points
- Coordinates (UTM & Degree format) are obtained from Google
- At least 4 coordinates are identified.
ii) Record the
(Vector Data)

- UTM ( Universal
Transverse Mercator)
coordinates are
recorded in an Excel
iii) Selecting the
- Aerial Photo (Raster
Data) and Coordinate
(Vector Data) are
connected with
- The Coordinate System
are set to UTM Kertau
Zone 47N.
iv) Import data to ArcMap
- Open ArcMap, add the Aerial Photo (Raster Data).
v) Georeferencing – add control points
- Start Georeferencing – Customize > Toolbar > Georeferencing
- Select “Add control points” (UTM coordinates)
- Right-click at location and select “Input X and Y”
3. Create Features

i) In ArcCatalog, create Shape file

ii) Create features using the Editor tool
i) In ArcCatalog, create Shape file
- In the connected folder, Right-click > New > Shapefile
ii) Create features using the Editor tool
- Select Customize > Toolbar > Editor
- Select “Start Editing” and draw the shape (point, polyline, polygon)
4. Add Attribute Data

- Right-click at shape layer

> Open Attribute Table
- Table Option > Press Add
Field (ex. Area, Length,
and etc.)
To calculate the entered attribute field :
Right-click at the desired field > Calculate Geometry
The data then is tabulated for each shapefile

• There is no significant change in the water level from the data

• The average distance for the first day is 165.5 cm, for the second
day is 166.8 cm and the last day is 168.1 cm.
• Based on the standard, the water level in this study is considered
safety since the distance exceed 10 cm.
Impact of GIS – provide
information about flash flood

Apply GIS application – using

ArcGis to present the data

Mini project representation –

communication between group

Raised retention pond embankment

•Avoid spill over to the nearby area

Upgrade drainage system

•Avoid spill over to the road
