The Lean Insider blog poses an interesting question…. is it keeping with the “respect for people” principle of the Toyota Production System if Toyota wants to move some production away from high-cost NUMMI (in high-cost California). Or, what if Toyota wanted to pull out completely, as rumored here on this other blog.
I’m still chewing on that one. What do you think? Feel free to comment here also. I’ll post my thoughts later.
Update: Our friend Ron posted his thoughts at his Lean Six Sigma Academy blog.
