Informative, ad-free: “Toyota will donate one meal to the New York Food Bank for every view this video gets.”

Kaizen! Continuous Improvement. TPS FTW!

“Meals Per Hour.”

This is one of those videos where I audibly said “Wow,” after watching.

Via Reddit, a few top comments:

I actually watched the video, and it’s surprisingly informative and not profit driven as you might expect a video from a company to be(with legitimate obvious advertising) I might actually use this TPS thing at home!

yeah, it is really impressive watching Toyota use their experience to completely renovate the process. Going from a 3 minute packing time to 11 seconds, is amazing.

Yeah my friend is studying supply chain management at a University, which is exactly what this video is about. He said one of his professors basically just pimps Toyota in all their classes because they are just so good at this process. They even have a book called “The Toyota Way” that is required reading for their course. I guess a lot of other companies try to model what Toyota does in this regard.

—FOR EVERY VIDEO VIEW BETWEEN JUNE 20th AND JULY 19th, TOYOTA WILL DONATE ONE MEAL TO THE FOOD BANK FOR NEW YORK CITY (UP TO 125,000 – IN ADDITION TO THE 250,000 THEY HAVE ALREADY DONATED) —–

The challenge: How can a non-profit implement Toyota’s legendary production system (TPS) to increase the number of meals distributed to people who are still affected by Superstorm Sandy? Watch this movie – and help us do even more.
thank you, and always be KAIZEN.
