Learning from history
Toyota Production System is widely studied and implemented throughout the world and is fast becoming a true legacy in the world's manufacturing business. Contrary to the general consensus of its global appeal, there are a number of companies that did try to implement the TPS but failed to make it work for them. I dare ask these companies to go back to the beginning and consider this question: "What brought about the birth of Toyota Production System in the first place?". By familiarizing yourselves with its history and Toyota's management system, I assure you that the answer will soon become clear to you.
