    No serious researchers would buy this very weird book Inside, there s no name of author, translator, publisher no ISBN, no page numbers, no Table of Contents, no Index, etc What s , its Preface states that Taiichi Ohno wrote it in March 1973 Before the Oil Crisis in Fall that year The title of its chapters as well as their contents are almost the same as those in Toyota Production System Beyond Large Scale Production by Taiichi Ohno published by Productivity Press, Portland, Oregon 1988 The title of this weird book is the title of Chapter 2 of the 1988 book.

EVOLUTION OF TOYOTA PRODUCTION SYSTEM (English Edition) It was the oil shock in the fall ofthat drew attention to our Toyota Production system This was because in the slow growth economy which followed, Toyota Motor Company showed a relatively stronger resistance to recession than other companiesThe Toyota approach was the result of many years trial and error as searched for a way to survive in competition with the mass production system already well established in Europe and America It is a product of the Toyota history which started with Mr Sakichi Toyota and has continued through Kiichiro Toyota to the presentFrom the beginning we felt we had some original ideas particularly suited to the economic environment of Japan So, we did not want other companies especially those of the advanced countries, to understand it easily Consequently we practiced the system and other techniques without publicizing them Thus it is only natural that our system was not understood easily Recently I heard often from the outside that there seems to be some sort of secret in the Toyota production system and in kanban, which is the method of operating the system We have received many direct and indirect inquiries from many people on the Toyota method of making things They were not only from people in business, but from professors who are teaching production management in the universities and management consultantsWe are grateful for this interest on the Toyota Production system However as the attention grows and as people in the business in this country study the subject, there seems to be misunderstanding in some cases or, sometimes certain convenient portion are abused One specific example is to make a shortcut conclusion that Toyota Production System is a Kanban system, but factually wrong Kanban is one of the operational means of the Toyota Production System and just the adoption of Kanban alone does not mean that productivity will rise accordingly And the intent of improving the record of a parent firm by harassing the subcontractors is entirely out of character with the idea of the Toyota Production SystemSo in order for others to understand and apply Toyota Production system correctly I have written this book In order to ensure correct understanding, emphasis was placed on the ideas and principles involved rather than giving many specific examples I would like to tell this to readers in advance March, Taiichi Ohno
