A technology of comprehensive production management invented by the Japanese. The basic idea of this system is to maintain a continuous flow of products in factories in order to flexibly adapt to demand changes.
A manufacturing philosophy that shortens the time between customer order and shipment by eliminating waste.
Based on some of the first principles of Henry Ford, this describes the philosophies of one of the world’s most successful companies. The foundation of TPS is production smoothing, the supports are just-in-time and jidoka.
The Toyota production system is a technology of comprehensive production management. The basic idea of this system is to maintain a continuous flow of products in factories in order to flexibly adapt to demand changes. The realization of such production flow is called Just-in-time production, which means producing only necessary units in a necessary quantity at a necessary time. As a result, the excess inventories and the excess work force will be naturally diminished, thereby achieving the purposes of increased productivity and cost reduction.
A methodology that resulted from over 50 years of Kaizen at Toyota, one of the most successful companies in the world. TPS is built on a foundation of Leveling, with the supporting pillars of Just-in-Time and Jidoka. See also Gemba Production System.
a system developed by Toyota Motor Corp. to provide best quality, lowest cost, and shortest lead time through the elimination of waste. It is often illustrated as a â€œhouseâ€ comprised of two pillars: Just-in-time and Jidoka. TPS is maintained and improved thorugh iterations of standardized work and kaizen.
The Toyota Production System (TPS) (ãƒˆãƒ¨ã‚¿ç”Ÿç”£æ–¹å¼) is the philosophy which organizes manufacturing and logistics at Toyota, including the interaction with suppliers and customers. TPS is known more generically as Lean manufacturing. It was largely created by the founder of Toyota, Sakichi Toyoda, his son Kiichiro Toyoda, and the engineer Taiichi Ohno; they drew heavily on the work of W.
