Motor Manufacturing France – Maintaining the Highest of Built-in Quality in the B-segment

Motor Manufacturing France has been building the Toyota for a decade. It remains committed to vehicles with the highest of built-in quality in the B-segment.

The Yaris has already established a for outstanding levels of Quality, and Reliability. Such quality can be assured through its comprehensive into every facet of the manufacturing process.

Development of the new Yaris project at was based on three key pillars:

the identification of improvement points each of the current Toyota production areas, and the very incorporation of these requirements the development of the new vehicle structure.

the guarantee of a smooth transfer of the new assembly operation to plant through proper training and a of fundamental skills.

Third, the improvement of built-in quality in the manufacturing processes, based on production System principles.

engineers were involved in the of the new Toyota Yaris for three before the start of production a year and a half longer on the previous generation vehicle.

All and quality departments sent engineers to Japan for between 6 to 18 to study and further improve the design. The feedback generated has highly beneficial in minimising production quality issues.

Key to built-in quality in the long TMMF also focused on that every part has designed for more consistent over the course of repeated allowing for greater control of fitting accuracy and build

Cross functional Business working groups focusing on quality, suppliers and production also established. Their aim is to critical process characteristics to the built-in quality of five functions – braking, turning, fuel leaks and fire starting points. also further improves consciousness from team as well as strengthening warranty and the critical process audit.

The involvement of suppliers in the vehicle preparation process was also to ensure the highest possible

This involvement takes the of numerous diverse activities: an intensive supplier development Toyota engineers are based at supplier factories to share and assist in the achievement of the expected standards.

For new parts, Toyota Simultaneous Engineering – the exchange of part design and manufacturing techniques between the and the supplier- as well as supplier tracking teams – visits to the supplier to ensure milestones are achieved- to solve well before the start of

Immediately prior to the start of new mass production, every visited TMMF on a regular both before and during trial periods. This for extensive discussion, design and trial parts fitting, the aim of identifying all potential problems.

a longer project development time within the Toyota and the early involvement of suppliers in the process combine to guarantee the possible identification of problems. measures are fundamental to the Toyota of continuous improvement, and will that the new Toyota Yaris customers the highest levels of quality in the B-segment.
