Toyota Quickens Quest to Unseat GM
As a friend in Detroit pointed out, it's interesting that Toyota is allowing Fuji/Subaru to build Toyota vehicles in Indiana, might be the first time Toyota is allowing others to build their cars. I'm sure it's faster to use that existing capacity than it is to build yet another plant (although two plants are already in the works, San Antonio and Ontario).
Am I right to assume that Toyota will manage this plant along the lines of NUMMI, where they do their best to use the full TPS approaches? Even if it's not 100% Toyota employees, can we assume that they will run it as if it's a Toyota plant and make sure people have learned and use TPS principles?
