Summary

The author shares information on the Toyota production system and how it can be adapted for other companies. In this book, you will learn how improving production effeciency is acheived by the relentless elimination of all waste.

Ohno compared just-in-time to an American supermarket, because at a supermarket:

  • A consumer gets what is needed
  • When its needed
  • In the amount needed
  • A manufacturing plant, according to Ohno, should function in the same manner.

Toyota Production System is a must-read for all forward thinking managers, because you will understand the basic principles that underline a just-in-time production system.
