The key  for real Lean Production success

One of the keys to Toyota’s success is the role that Production Planning and Control plays in the organization.

Production Planning and Control is the voice of the Customer to manufacturing and conversely it is the section that manages information flow from the Customer, Suppliers, Manufacturing and Engineering.

As Atsushi Niimi (former President of TMMNA) once said, “PPC is where the real power of Toyota is”.

In this course we would like to:

  • Show the Roles and Responsibility of PPC in a lean organization.
  • Create a smoothed weekly Production Plan that will absorb order fluctuation.
  • Create a Kanban Replenishment system to drive Just in Time Production while maintaining minimum and maximum inventory levels of finished goods
  • Measure the results of our trial.

This workshop will give the participant a chance to create a Production Forecast and Firm Plan, create a weekly plan, and create a Kanban control board to regulate production (replenishment) and confirm production readiness (Man, Method, Machine and Material).
