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”.
