Project #57443 - operations management 2

Exercise 1: Making a Critical Assessment of the Toyota Production System (TPS) Today

a. Demonstrate your tbasic understanding of the TPS by 1) defining in your  own words any eight of the terms found at http://www.toyotageorgetown.com/terms.asp, and 2) applying them to one or more of your own company or other organizations.

For example, Pokayoke can be defined as an approach to avoid production mistakes through use of devices that detect or prevent errors. At a software development firm, pokayoke might be applied through use of a modular development process that includes extensive software module testing before proceeding to module integration and total system testing

.

b. Describe the TPS as a total entity. What are its purposes? Its advantages? Its limitations? How is it now evolving? Is it getting better � or not? Has it been successfully copied by other motor vehicle manufacturers?  Why or why not?
