Participate in a discussion regarding the case study “Decoding the DNA of the Toyota Production System” by Steven Spear and H. Kent Bowen. This HBR article discusses the unspoken rules that gives Toyota its competitive edge.
Choose a manufacturing or service process with which you are familiar. This process could be associated with any job you have held. Describe the process in detail. Discuss how any of the four rules that underlies the Toyota Production System could be applied to improve this process. Be very detailed on the implementation of the rule that you chose. In your response to another student, make constructive recommendations on how to improve their idea.
