Peter Abilla's Shmula Blog

Peter pointed me to this example he posted a while back, he says “it's an authentic artifact from Toyota. I participated in this when I spent 1.5 weeks in the Hebron, KY supply parts distribution facility.”

It's an example of Toyota problem solving to help figure out why daily 5S cleaning wasn't occurring.

Take a look, he includes a graphic of an A3 report, a summary of their work.
