Photos from the Toyota San Antonio Plant Visitor Center
Following up on my recent post on the tour of the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas (TMMTX) plant in San Antonio, here are some pictures from the visitor center… You can compare this to what was displayed at the Toyota Museum in Nagoya, Japan and two pictures (in this post) from the visitor center of a Toyota plant in Japan.

To those who might say that Lean / TPS is only about efficiency and not also quality:
The visitor center has a small robot that kids can watch… and, of course, the robot is properly locked out and even has a safety checklist in a standardized work format. It doesn't really seem to be part of the exhibit… it's just required.
