Introducing and Implementing the Toyota Production System - Shiego Shingo



Background

The basic adherence to subtracted-cost principle is needed. Consumer sets the selling price for the expected sales quantity and the company can only increase profit by lowering costs by eliminating waste from the product as well as production and distribution process.

To reduce costs, Toyota's main thrust is on reducing the total inventory related cost by reducing lot sizes and safety stock rationally. The other major thrust is on increasing human resource productivity by reducing its role in running machines. Machines are made more automatic and intelligent to detect defects and stop.
