How Toyota Production System (TPS) benefits your organisation 

The Toyota Production System empowers team members to optimise quality by constantly improving processes and eliminating unnecessary waste in natural, human and corporate resources. Toyota Production System influences every aspect of Toyota’s organisation and includes a common set of values, knowledge and procedures. It entrusts employees with well-defined responsibilities in each production step and encourages every team member to strive for overall improvement.
As a result, Toyota Production System delivers the following key benefits:

  • Quality inherent in Toyota’s products
  • Costs are kept to a minimum thanks to a good return on investment
  • Delivery is on time, and to the expected standard, allowing Toyota’s customers to plan and maintain their operations successfully
  • Environmental concerns are shared by Toyota and its customers, from manufacturing through to recycling at end-of-life
  • Safety is Toyota’s constant concern – both for its employees and for those of its customers.

The Toyota Production System fulfils customer demand efficiently and promptly by linking all production activity to real marketplace demand. Just-in-time production relies on finely tuned processes in the assembly sequence using only the quantities of items required, only when they are needed.

Imagine a process designed to produce six different types of product, where the total weekly demand for the range of products varies up and down by 25%, and the daily mix of product types is continuously changing.
