Superior Quality Built In
At Toyota Manufacturing UK, Members build in quality to the vehicles at every process.
We carry out quality assurance activities based on the three quality principles:-
- Customer expectation determines the quality required.
- Quality is built in at every stage of the process.
- Quality is continuously improved (kaizen).
To achieve total quality control, Toyota Manufacturing UK uses standardised work together with visual control to clearly indicate the current status and make it very easy to spot problems. Each member is responsible for the quality of their work and aims never to pass on poor quality to the next stage. If anything unusual is noticed, the member can stop the process. Rigorous scrutiny of key features and functions of each vehicle helps to confirm both the quality of the vehicle and the stability of the production process.
