The Tao of Production

The Tao of Production

Published by Andy Urquhart
This article describes the real Toyota Production System, as practiced by at least two Japanese companies in Japan. Unlike Six Sigma and Lean Enterprise, the real Toyota Production System (TPS) uses 100% inspection to assure the quality of sub-assemblies. This is why practitioners of the TPS place so much emphasis on one-by-one confirmation using single-flow production lines. Unlike many consultants, this author has actually worked hands-on for two Japanese companies, where he held responsible for advanced quality.
