Identify the approaches and methods of continuous improvement and force problem solving. What sort of problems would companies incur using an “after the fact” method? What is the difference between JIT, Toyota Production Systems (TPS), and lean operations? The JIT environments within an organization produce low amounts of waste in the form of time and production, have a very small amount of variability, and have low inventory stock-piles. If you recall from previous chapters, why wouldn’t a push system generally not be found within a JIT environment?

Toyota, (TPS) methods and systems has been implemented by thousands of companies worldwide and yet they had one of the most serious brake problems several years ago. If companies like Toyota and others have such high quality management programs how do these type of problems happen? What can companies do more to prevent these types of problems?

When we expand on these meanings do you think anyone one method is better than the other? Please explain?

In JIT partnerships, suppliers have several concerns. These concerns are:

  • Diversification
  • Poor customer scheduling
  • Customers’ Infrequent engineering changes, small lot sizes
  • Producing high enough quality levels.

Why would these be concerns to suppliers?

Do you see any of these concerns within your own supply-base at work?…
