◆Toyota Plant
In Toyota Factory Tour, we visit their main plant located at the birthplace of Toyota Motor Company. Now some 330,000 Toyota employees work at their worldwide locations.
Following are the major points worthy of note. You'll feel like going into the near-future world where hundreds of manufacturing robots in operation.

1. Just-in-time manufacturing operation that starts only after receipt of order. This made an inventory free operation possible.
2. A single car consists of about 30,000 parts including small screws.
At their assembly plants, conveyors moving at a specific speed are installed. Parts are assembled on the conveyors. Because an individual customer’s requirements for the car are different you’ll see many cars of different colors, shapes, and parts are lined up on the same conveyor. It’s a manufacturing system named Kanban Hoshiki Style that made this complicated manufacturing method possible without making mistakes. This Kanban Style is truly a management revolution.
3. An individual machine at each manufacturing process is equipped
with an error sensitive device that stops the machine automatically and doesn’t produce faulty parts. Each worker is responsible for own operation. When they find any problems, they stop the manufacturing process and solve the issue.
4. At Toyota, each employee’s potential ability is highly respected. In other words, all the workers are so-called inventors. At each operation, new devices and improvements are accumulated to produce more effectively with fewer mistakes. There is a special
corner where a visitor can experience such new devices and improvements.
5. You'll observe the above items on a bus with an English explanation from responsible Toyota staff.

 

◆Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology

Sakichi Toyoda was born in 1867, one year earlier to Meiji Restoration.

He was a carpenter’s son and became the founder of the world largest car manufacturer, Toyota Motor Company.

In 19th century, most of Asian countries became a colony of European and

North America. Japan managed to become a member of advanced countries after succeeding an industrial revolution. It’s called a miracle of the Orient.

Major reasons for the miracle were Japanese people’s educational standards that enabled the easy understanding of European and North American technologies. Especially Japanese developers’ and engineers’ originality and ingenuity that further enhanced the technologies from Europe and North America.

Most of all, Sakichi Toyoda often called an Edison of the Orient, made a series of inventions. He finally succeeded in inventing the world’s best automatic loom and sold its patent right and received 83,000 pounds in 1929.

That was an enormous amount then. He invested this amount to found the car company which became today’s Toyota Motor Company.

At this Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, many automatic looms invented by Sakichi Toyoda are on display. A variety of demonstrations show how textiles are woven from thread. At the car display section, from the first Toyota car to the latest hybrid cars, sports cars, and future cars are on display. At the car mechanism section from robot-controlled welding machines to various manufacturing equipment are on display. And those exhibits are actually operable.

There is a section for making a toy car. You can make a cell phone strap and a medal at free of charge. It’s really a fun facility for everybody from adults to children.
