The Toyota Production System is the envy of Western manufacturing. It has transformed the auto industry and spawned a lean manufacturing revolution that's changing the way products are made across the United States and indeed throughout the entire world. Companies such as Dell Computers, Pella Windows and Harley-Davidson Motorcycles are using it to pull the rug from under their competition. But as important to the success and performance of Toyota year after year is a product development system that's four times more productive than what is used by most companies. This book makes that system crystal clear. No business that depends on a steady flow of new and improved products can afford to ignore the revelations contained here, nor can they disregard the potential advantages that will accrue from following the process outlined. Learn not only how product development works at Toyota, learn how this prolific method can be put to work in your business. Book jacket.
