Toyota Lean Manufacturing
Transcript of Toyota Lean Manufacturing
Investing in the future. In 2010, Toyota formed a partnership with Tesla Motors, based in Palo Alto, California, to develop and manufacture electric vehicles (EVs) like the new Toyota electric RAV4, scheduled for market this year. In total, Toyota has invested $50 million in Tesla. Working side-by-side with Tesla is just one example of Toyota’s emphasis on supporting environmentally sensitive mobility, and developing advanced technology vehicles to meet the needs of our consumers today — and tomorrow.

Value is always defined by the customer. Not the factory’s shareholders, not the research and development division, but the guy who writes the check.
An engineer might think that Beethoven’s Ode to Joy sounding each time the car’s doors are unlocked is a must, but if most drivers are fine with the good old chirp or find the feature annoying, none of the engineering, material or labor that went into the project added any value to the car and they were therefore nothing more than waste.
Value is anything that a customer is willing to pay for. Waste
Any activity (motion) that is unproductive or does not add to the value of the product is waste. Toyota managers use the Japanese word “muda” which means “waste” or “uselessness”. The seven kinds of waste are:
