The TPS Car Factory Simulation is included in each Deluxe, Deluxe-Plus, and Grand Package. This implementation of the Toyota Production System training takes a slightly different focus to lean concepts than the Standard Car Factory simulation. In this exercise, attention is given to the support functions found in a factory, such as fixtures and totes, material kits, material conveyance, process and cross training, and workload balance.
Lean flow is developed over five simulation steps, each applying attention to the process of trying continuous improvement, measuring results, and trying again. The simulation event is spaced over several tables and greater distances are used to simulate real factory communication conditions.
Financial metrics for the simulation track progress as earned value steadily improves with each lean redesign.
