Toyota Material Handling UK has developed a whitepaper based on the renowned Toyota Production System (TPS) that provides a Business Improvement Roadmap which can be applied in every business operation including warehousing. The TPS whitepaper uses a framework and a series of tasks to help any organisation apply the principles to their company.
The Business Improvement Roadmap begins by looking at the importance of culture, and creating clear goals and guidelines for your team. The guide then explains tools and processes for business efficiency and how all departments must work together to achieve a motivated and safe working environment.
By using the framework in the guide you are able to put into practice the basic tools of TPS, carryout 5S and MUDA audits on your operation in order to reduce waste and identify areas for improvements.
The TPS whitepaper builds on existing practices to develop a structured approach to change that involves everybody in your organisation. The guide can be applied to all business from offices to warehousing, manufacturing and non-manufacturing environments.
The Toyota Production System, Business Improvement Roadmap is available to download for free via the Toyota website, to download your copy visithttp://goo.gl/xSAqof
