  15. 15. Comments – Kiichiro Toyoda<br />“I plan to cut down on the slack time within work processes and in the shipping of parts and materials as much as possible. As the basic principle in realizing this plan, I will uphold the just-in-time approach. <br />The guiding rule is not to have goods shipped too early or too late.”<br />Kiichiro Toyoda, founder of Toyota Motor Company, 1938<br />
  16. 16. Comments – Taiichi Ohno<br />“All we are doing is looking at the timeline from the moment the customer gives us an order to the point when we collect the cash. And we are reducing that time by removing the non-value added wastes”<br /> Taiichi Ohno, 1988<br />
  17. 17. Hard Times Led to TPS<br />Non-Debt Management<br />Toyota Production System<br />JUST-IN-TIME PRODUCTION<br /><ul><li>What is needed,
  18. 18. When it is needed,
  19. 19. in the right amount, &
  20. 20. in the right quality</li></ul>Don’t buy any unnecessary materials and don’t deliver them. Don’t produce products without any order. Sell products as soon as production is completed<br />JIDOKA<br /><ul><li>Don’t pass the defective parts onto the following process</li></ul>Don’t manufacture defective parts.

  22. 22. LEAN FUNDAMENTALS<br />Overview<br />
  23. 23. A “Customer First” Attitude<br />“If the customer is not satisfied<br />nothing else matters!”<br />Customers want:<br /><ul><li> the best possible product
  24. 24. at the lowest possible cost
  25. 25. as soon as possible</li></ul>“If you’re not striving for customer satisfaction, thenwhy are you in business anyway?”<br />
  26. 26. The Highest Quality Vehicle<br />There is an increase in Quality when team members learn to identify and eliminate waste.<br />Eliminating waste consists ofpreventing defects which willimprove quality.<br />Within the TPS philosophy it is important to realize that quality should be “built-in” at each process (Jidoka).<br />
  27. 27.

  29. 29. The Lowest Possible Cost“Cost Plus Principle vs. Cost Reduction Principle”<br />Cost Reduction Principle<br />Sales Price - Cost = Profit<br />“Sales price is decided accordingto market conditions. Profit is increased only if costs are kept under the sales price”.<br />Cost-Plus Principle<br />Sales price = Cost + Profit<br />“If cost goes up, then sales price does too”<br />To reduce cost you must:<br /><ul><li>Distinguish between what is absolutely necessary and what is not absolutely necessary.
