At Toyota Manufacturing UK, Members build in quality to the vehicles at every process.
Total quality control is carried out using two basic principles: building in quality at every stage and continually improving quality standards in order to achieve total quality and delight the customer. To achieve total quality control, Toyota Manufacturing UK uses standardised work together with visual control to clearly indicate the current status and make it very easy to spot problems. Each member is responsible for the quality of their work and aims never to pass on poor quality to the next stage. If anything unusual is noticed, the member can stop the process. Rigorous scrutiny of key features and functions of each vehicle helps to confirm both the quality of the vehicle and the stability of the production process.
Toyota Production System -
TPS has three desired outcomes; firstly, to provide the customer with the highest quality vehicles, at the lowest possible cost, in a timely manner with the shortest possible lead times. Secondly, to provide members with work satisfaction, job security and fair treatment. Finally, it gives the company flexibility to respond to the market, achieve profit through cost reduction activities and long-term prosperity.
TPS strives for the absolute elimination of waste, overburden and unevenness in all areas to allow members to work smoothly and efficiently. The foundations of TPS are built on standardisation to ensure a safe method of operation and a consistent approach to quality. Toyota members seek to continually improve their standard processes and procedures in order to ensure maximum quality, improve efficiency and eliminate waste. This is known as kaizen and is applied to every sphere of the company's activities.
