- Lean and TPS
The lean production method was born from TPS, so TPS and Lean are almost the same, but please understand the difference in historical background and consider the introduction method that suits your company.
TPS – Do you really understand what is waste? –
The basic philosophy of TPS(Toyota production system) is the reduce the manufacturing costs by removing complete all unnecessary (waste).
There are two basic ideas.
“jidoka” is not just automation.
“jidoka” (which can be loosely translated as “automation with a human touch”), as when a problem occurs, the equipment stops immediately, preventing defective products from being produced.
Avoid making defective products, rather than finding defective products by inspection.
Making only “what is needed, when it is needed, and in the amount needed”
Just-in-Time is a production method that responds to diversifying consumer needs. Even in small-lot production of many kinds, work in process can be eliminated, and production can be performed with less cost and in shorter time.
Etymology of Just-in-time
A word from Toyota Motor’s founder Kiichiro Toyoda: “Car parts are best collected just in time.”

About TPS and Lean
Nearly 30 years ago, Lean was presented as the generic version of TPS.
Actually, Lean was an interpretation of TPS – a rather poor interpretation.
Then, over time, Lean drifted farther away from TPS, thus making it far less of a generic version of TPS and more its own unique thing.
The lean production method is packaged even as a production management method, and a set of texts, checklists, and standards required for introduction is provided as a package from a consulting company.
On the other hand, TPS is a production method that has been established to thoroughly eliminate waste on the production line.
It is a method that has been systematized based on the two pillars of “just-in-time” and “automation” in order to define seven wastes and eliminate them.
