Parts are packed into plastic trays
Arranged into groups to fit into a module for shipment
Loaded into containers for shipment
Minimal production cost, high quality, and technology innovation, and a good philosophical fit with Toyota. Focus on long-term relationships that underscores cooperation teamwork, and gradual mutual improvement

Value analysis - intensive examination of the services, materials, processes, information systems, and flows of material.

Single sourcing strategy - helps to optimize the company’s supply chain, lower production costs and produce better value for shareholders and customers.
make frequent deliveries in small lot sizes through synchronization and optimization of inventory levels
Forces suppliers to be closer by exchange production information, technical information and logistic information

Tier Structure. like pyramid structure from first-tier suppliers to third-tier suppliers.

Information sharing- establish BAMA (Bluegrass Automotive Manufacturers Association) to sharing or feedback information between suppliers

Cross-sharing of personnel management through:
sending personal to suppliers to compensate for greater workload
transferring senior managers to suppliers for top positions
Benefits of TPS

2000 route runs, and 835,000 miles per day
