The discussion majors on the topic of operations management. Operations management is a form of management that focuses on the analysis and evaluation of the away in which operations are done, and whether such operations meet the organizational objectives of the company or not (Stevenson, 2012). It centers the interests on the amount of products made per day, the number of customers served, the length of the waiting lines and the quality of the products form the company (Stevenson, 2012).

The quality tool in the case of the Toyota Company is Just-In-Time.  This tool is suitable for the project as it has been proven that it can be used to reduce the inventory, minimize waste during production and respond to the customers whenever they need attention (Lu & Nihon, 2009). The Toyota Company applies the tool to realize an increase in the efficiency of production and a decreased rate of wastages. This in the long run reduces the inventory for the company, increasing the profit margins as it reduces the operations cost for the company (Brennan, 2011).  

The Just-In-Time tool has been selected as a suitable tool for Toyota’s operations management as it has a number of benefits to the company’s operations. First, there low wastages in the company (Lu & Nihon, 2009).The tool ensure that there is maximization of the materials which are used in the operations run in the company.  The conservation of these resources means that there is a low and reduced rate of wastage. This saves the company of the extra costs which could have been incurred in catering for the wastages. For instance, the tool ensures that the company makes good use of the spare parts available, without wasting them.  The other essence of Just-In-Time for Toyota Company is that it realizes high quality production (Lu & Nihon, 2009).The tool gives provision that whatever is produced should be done within the stipulated time and with the required quality. This has made the company to make huge sales in the day-to-day sale. High responsiveness to the customers is another benefit of the tool (Lu & Nihon, 2009). The tool gives provisions the  Toyota Company’s operations management  should take into considerations the customer needs and attend to their  complains. This makes the company to gain trust on the regular customers and win new ones.

The technique will be used in a number of ways. First, it will be used to ensure that the wastages in the Toyota Company are brought down to the least values possible (Brennan, 2011).  The technique will give guidelines on how these wastages will be lowered. In addition, the technique will be used to increase the quality of production to a high level.  Modalities will be put in place to ensure that Toyota Company’s operations realize an output that is of high quality. The quality of responsiveness to the customers will form an essential part of the technique. The company will apply the technique to respond to the customer queries, complains and views within the shortest time possible and to their satisfaction. This will ensure that the company will retain the old customers and attract new ones. Low inventory is another application of the technique. The company will put in place modalities which will ensure that there is low inventory in its processes (Brennan, 2011).
