Toyota Management System

TMS (Grade IV) Certificate Program

By TMS TPS Certificate Institute & Toyota Engineering Corporation – Japan

Learn from the founders of Toyota Management System & Lean Management

Toyota’s automobile production method, known as the Toyota Production System (TPS), is renowned worldwide for its efficiency in improving quality, productivity, and delivery speed. While applying TPS to production and back-office functions, they developed Toyota Management System (TMS) to significantly improve productivity and reduce indirect costs in white-collar workplaces.

TMS is practiced by Toyota’s top management team, managers in production and indirect functions such as design, production preparation, and sales. This program will equip the participants with the TMS knowledge and skills to achieve improved results and transform your company into a stronger and better one.

The Toyota Management System (TMS) is a comprehensive approach to a management methodology that can be applied in any industry or workplace. TMS is the underlying management system of Toyota Production System (TPS), Toyota Development System (TDS) & Toyota Marketing & Sales System (TMSS) . In this program, you will learn how to “Yarigai,” or turn ideas into practice and achieve workplace satisfaction.

TMS boosts productivity and reduces indirect costs through the implementation of Visual Management Tools and a method for total management, which facilitates continuous improvement (Kaizen) in the workplace and creates a supportive environment for people.

“Participating in this program helped me to get a deeper understanding of the Total Toyota Production System. Revitalization of the workplace and respect for people are two key takeaways for me. I started involving the people in my workplace in daily problem solving and was amazed at the number of kaizens that can be done on the shop floor. It was an honor to learn from Masters and the Toyota Engineering Corporation.”
