English Hey, hey, look at that. Are you going home already? No, I'm not going home. I'm making a trip in space and time. A trip in space and time??!! What do you mean? I'm going to Japan, but the Japan of the last century. What are you going to do in Japan of the last century? I want to see the birth of Lean with my own eyes. I'll see you. We have gone back in time and space to Japan after the Second World War. The country has been hit hard by this war. The Japanese economy has been hit severely. At this time... one of the stars of the Japanese economy is the Toyota Corporation. Around this period, the Toyota Corporation was experimenting with a number of production techniques, philosophies, tools and concepts that managed to drastically reduce costs and reduce production time. They were enormously successful. The set of production techniques, philosophies, tools and concepts became famous throughout the world as the Toyota Production System, or TPS. Gradually, companies outside Japan started noticing Toyota's enormous success and started to copy the Toyota production system. At first, only manufacturing companies copied TPS. But gradually, even service providers saw the enormous benefit of the system and started copying it as well. So what is the relevance of the Toyota Production System for this course, which is about Lean? Well, ladies and gentlemen, this Toyota Production System became known outside Japan as Lean. Lean is the Toyota Production System. And the Toyota Production System is Lean. Now, in the coming lecture, we will dig deeper into the essence of the Toyota Production System. If you want to get a deeper understanding of the history of Lean or Toyota Production System, please download the text that is attached to this video. So far, I would like to thank you for your attention.
