Kaizen and the Toyota Production System

Material Handling Best Practices, Tips, Information and More from Toyota

toyota_logoThe ideology of kaizen is an important part of Toyota and the Toyota Production System. At its core, kaizen means no process is perfect and therefore there is always room for improvement.

Practicing kaizen requires all team members in all parts of the organization to discover ways to improve operations. Executives, managers and associates at every level in the company support this process of improvement.

Kaizen requires a positive attitude and a focus on what should be done rather than what can be done.

During production of Toyota-built engines, kaizen has helped lead downsized displacement with equivalent output, higher fuel efficiency, cleaner emissions and a reduction in overall size! The philosophy of kaizen is what has helped Toyota gain market recognition for all of its engines, weaving looms, parts, automobiles and forklifts.
