Vehicle Repair Process using the TPS Principals

2014 Model S Repair

This is the physical process of auto collision repair using the principles of the Toyota “lean” or Thinking Production System adapted for high variability, low volume work by Aaron Marshall.

Note: This process is part of a larger Single piece flow, pull production system designed to aid in variability reduction and problem discovery. It should not be viewed as a stand alone activity. It is built around the customer and depends on leadership, organization and good communication throughout.
