  5. 5. Biography• Educated at “Ecole des Mines” in St. Etienne• Almost 60 years of experience as an engineer and Director at “Houilleres de Commentry”• 1916: Publication of “General and Industrial Management”

  12. 12. Philosophy of Fordism • Widespread prosperity and rise corporate profitsHow ? • High wages allow the workers to purchase the output they produce.The idea : Convert workers into customers
  13. 13. Division of labor • Distinctive division of labor allows complex tasks to be divided into several simple and repetitive one. • Skilled labor is no more needed in the production.
  14. 14. Standardisation -Major issue of custom made cars : Each producers have -Hand-made steel parts have to their own parts and be recalibrate after beeing components. (even not the quenched. same metric system) -Ford invented a process to directly shape parts out of a quenched steel block.
  15. 15. Optimize the working space • Typically similar machinery are installed one next to another. • Ford rearrange them into the correct sequence to follow the production patern. • Various parts of the production process are linked together by a moving conveyor belt : "Bring the work to the workers."
  16. 16. Disadvantages Advantages
  17. 17. Alfred P. Sloan (1875-1966) • A pure product of the MIT… – Graduated in electrical engineering in 1895, at 20 – Member of ΔΥ fraternity – Founded in 1950 the School of Industrial Management

  23. 23. Toyota Production System • A production system was developed between 1948 and 1975 for Toyota Motor company by: – Taiichi Ohno, – Shigeo Shingo – Eiji Toyoda
  24. 24. • Difficulties for the company : – Small market with high competition – Poor consumers
  25. 25. Aim• Eliminate all muni, mura, muda (overburden, inconsistency, waste) from the operation to stay competitive.
  26. 26. Toyota Production System House
  27. 27. Just in time production• Created by the founder of Toyota : Sakichi Toyoda, his son Kiichiro Toyoda and the engineer Taiichi Ohno.• Based on the 7 wastes: – over-production – motion (of operator or machine) – waiting (of operator or machine) – conveyance – processing itself – inventory (raw material) – correction (rework and scrap)
  28. 28. Jidoka• TPS emphasizes the participation of all employees.• Toyota organized their workers by forming teams• Each team has a leader who also works on the line• Teams are responsible for : – Training to do many specialized tasks. – Housekeeping and minor equipment repair.
  29. 29. Jidoka• Product defects must be discovered as soon as possible.• Workers are responsible for the discover of defects.• Workers are able to stop the entire line by pulling a cord (Jidoka).• Workers are controlling machine’s work.
