TPS and Lean manufacturing has been created and developed by Toyota and now are used by many companies across the world. The book explains why Toyota has become one of the most successful company in the world and w The Toyota way should be everyone's way. The book explains why Toyota has become one of the most successful company in the world and why Ford came in to inspect the TPS - Toyota production system.
The 5s methodology - sort, straighten, shine, standardise and sustain is a great learning from this book. Love the JIT and how they stop the production as soon as they find a fault or defect in the production system.
Also explains on how to minimal waste and improve efficiency. Also this book will make you understand why Japanese are the best as well. They just don't do things. They ask why and and then do it and do it to perfection.
Overall a great book to read to be a successful manager and to have a better success at any venture that you start. One thing that ponders me after reading this is why does Toyota recall some of the cars if they have followed the TPS and all the systems in place properly.
What principle is at flaw here and that's why I have given 4 stars. Toyota had was capital poor, resource poor, and the Japanese car market was small. Eventually, the strategy of operational excellence elimination of waste allowed resource poor Toyota to dominate it's res Toyota Industries Corporation was a Japanese maker of automatic looms device used to weave cloth when Kiichiro eldest son of the founder established the Toyota Motor Corporation.
Eventually, the strategy of operational excellence elimination of waste allowed resource poor Toyota to dominate it's resource rich western rivals.
Ironically, Kiichiro was inspired by Henry Ford 's bookwhich many Ford Motor Company managers and executives have not read. Kiichiro's critical insight is similar to Eliyahu M. Goldratt 's Theory of Constraints with it's focus on optimisation, especially as related to the factory floor.
Typically factories want to keep all of their capital equipment busy, so that they can make good use of their investment. Each machine creates small piles of partially finished goods.
As if you've poured lots of grease into an engine. Even if the parts don't fit together and operate precisely, the engine will still work because it's heavily lubricated. Like the early days of Sam WaltonKiichiro was capital poor, he couldn't compete using the same strategy as his advisories.
By draining all of the lubrication intermediate stages of inventory out of the system, problems would constantly come to the surface. Each time a problem was located, it was corrected. The result was a machine that was built to constantly improve. Kiichiro's strategy can be applied to more than just the assembly line.
The crux of the issue is as simple as Obvious Adams - focus on your customer and see the world from their perspective. Fortunately, Kiichiro's strategy is more rigorous, offering specific tactics and tools.
Toyota has developed a set of concepts that dominate much of the manufacturing world. Waste is typically represented as inventory. The result is Lean Manufacturing, or ultimately the Lean Enterprise.
Core principles of the Toyota Way Lean are: Managers must go to the source of the problem and see it with their own eyes, not trust the verbal or written reports of their subordinates. No matter how good the process is, it can always be made more perfect.
Build a system where problems easily come to the surface, and fix them quickly. Kanbans put a cap on the maximum amount of each type of inventory at a given time. Because kanbans represent inventory, and inventory is waste, a lean enterprise starts with Kanban's but eventually works to minimize and eliminate them.Dec 01, · The Toyota Way is the first book for a general audience that explains the management principles and business philosophy behind Toyota's worldwide reputation for quality and reliability.4/5.
