Toyota Production System Support Center 30 years on

For more than 30 years, Toyota Production System Support Center (TSSC), a not-for-profit corporation, has shared its know-how with more than 500 partners. Its teachings are based on the Toyota Production System (TPS), an organizational manufacturing culture and mindset that engages people to continuously make improvements and create solutions.

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, TSSC today joined with its partners and experts to reflect on its history and look toward its future.

Utilizing TPS, TSSC operates on the philosophy that small improvements can make a big difference, not only inside Toyota but with outside organizations as well. This approach has seen transformative results in unexpected places for an automaker, including hospitals, food banks, health care providers and local businesses.

By sharing its knowledge to find better ways of doing their day-to day work, achieve higher productivity, maximize resources, and improve quality and safety, TSSC helps partners stay competitive, preserve jobs and support more people and communities in need.

“Sharing ideas to find better ways of doing things demonstrates that small improvements can make a big difference while enriching peoples’ lives and making communities stronger,” said James Bonini, president of TSSC. “We’ve learned that sharing our know-how gained from years of automaking experience can help others, and TSSC has been fortunate to help a variety of partners make a positive impact in the communities where they operate.”

Established 1992, TSSC has 15 full-time employees who travel throughout North America and execute up to 50 projects annually. Partner companies and organizations are for- and non-profits, and through strong collaboration, solutions are identified, tested and implemented to drive performance.
