BusinessmodelThe “Toyota Way” incorporates the Toyota Production System (TPS).The main objectives of the TPS are to design out overburden (muri) andinconsistency (mura), and to eliminate waste (muda). The basic principles are:-Just In Time (JIT)The phrase originated at Toyota and originally described how material should beprocessed and moved in order to arrive "Just In Time" for the next operation.Objectivel: produce whatever necessary, whenever necessary, the necessaryquantity-Lean manufacturing (Lean)The concept of preserving value with less work. This production practiceconsiders the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation ofvalue for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination.
The ToyotaProduction System 7 kinds of Muda (waste) Respect - understand each other and build over production (largest waste) mutual trust. time on hand (waiting) transportation Teamwork - stimulate personal growth and processing itself improve team performance. stock at hand movement making defective products Poka yoke - processes designed to prevent human errors, baka yoke or "idiot-proofing" Principles of continuous improvement Kaizen - we improve our business operations continuously, always driving for innovation and evolution.

KanbanKanban is a scheduling system for lean and JIT production. It is not aninventory control system; it is a scheduling system that helps determinewhat to produce, when to produce it, and how much to produce. Kanban rules1.Do not send defective products to the subsequent process2.The subsequent process comes to withdraw only what is needed3.Produce only the exact quantity withdrawn by the subsequent process4.Level the production5.Kanban is a means to fine tuning6.Stabilize and rationalize the process.
