Bosch Production System
BOSCH implemented it's own production system in 2002known as BOSCH PRODUCTION SYSTEM (BPS) to increase customer satisfaction and value contribution through overall improvement of quality, delivery and costs.

Creating a consistent flow in accordance with Lean Thinking principles.
Ensuring more accurate planning, greater transparency through the whole group.
Identifying the potential synergies between plants.
Problems faced by BPS
As a company with so many markets, so much capability and so much technology, Bosch generates a great deal of complexity.
Global competition in power tools division.
The most problems with quality come from interrupting work doing it today this way and tomorrow another way.
There should be a standard, which should represent the current best practice of the company.
Flexibility is one of the major problem with BPS, which affects the Kanban system, standardization, stabilization, Kaizen system etc.
Possible solutions
The philosophy should be modified according to the organization's culture instead of imitating TPS directly.
A group of people should be dedicated to implement TPS through out the organization.
There should be a synchronized system of all the processes to reduce the variations.
A proper training should be given to all the employees before joining.
They should be ready to any temporary downfall in the production while implementing this philosophy.
Reasons why some of the companies failed in implementing TPS
Many American and German businesses set out to attack high inventory levels directly without understanding what made these reductions possible.
The act of imitating without understanding the underlying concept or without changing the philosophy may have led to the failure of those projects.

Organizations has fear that this may lead to a downfall in the production
Lack of knowledge in TPS among employees
