This paper proposes “New JIT”, a new principle of next generation management technology that contributes to corporate management. New JIT consists of a hardware system founded on three core elements (TMS—Toyota Marketing System, TDS—Toyota Development System, and TPS—Toyota Production System), and a software system (TQM-S) (total quality management utilizing scientific statistical quality control (SQC)) that enables the application of scientific TQM. In previous studies, the effectiveness of New JIT was successfully proven through its application in a leading Japanese company, Toyota Motor Corporation. In developing “global marketing” to win the global competition in quality and cost, the key for domestic and foreign companies is to successfully achieve “global production” that enables simultaneous production start-up (the same quality and production at optimal locations) all over the world.

Key Terms in this Chapter

A Management Technology Strategy Model: To realize manufacturing of excellent quality for the customer, the author proposes a management technology strategy model that utilizes the “strategic task team model” between the manufacturer and affiliated/non-affiliated suppliers, the “global partnering model”, for strategically implementing new JIT, and the “simultaneous QCD fulfillment approach model”, for developing new JIT.

JIT: The Japanese-style production system represented by the current Toyota Production System, called JIT, is a production system which has been developed by Toyota.

Strategic Task Team Model between the Manufacturer and Affiliated/Non-Affiliated Suppliers: In the stage of actual implementation, it is important to strategically organize the stratified task teams from the following viewpoints by setting the objective to be continual improvement of management technologies: (1) product strategy; (2) engineering strategy; (3) quality strategy; (4) QCD effect; (5) value of task team; and (6) human resource strategy.

Global Partnering Model for Strategically Implementing New JIT: GPM consists of four cores, namely, the stratified joint task team (GPM-HT, Task-1 to Task-8) in mutual cooperation with affiliated and non-affiliated suppliers, the stratified education training for improving the skills of staff and managers (GPM-HE, the hierarchical education), the stratified leader training (GPM-HL, the hierarchical leaders growth), and the overs.

New JIT: A new management technology principle defines the next-generation technical principles for transforming management technology into management strategy. The first item, the hardware system, consists of the TMS, TDS, and TPS. The second item, software, has developed Science TQM (total quality management utilizing Science SQC), called TQM-S, as the system for improving the work process quality.

SQC: A new quality control principle was developed under a new concept using a new methodology that applied the four core principles in combination with Scientific SQC, SQC technical methods, total SQC technical intelligence system (TTIS), and management SQC which enabled jobs to be scientifically performed.

Structured Model of Strategic Stratified Joint Task Teams: Structured model of stratified joint task teams by forming partnering links will be developed systematically and organizationally to promote the strategic development of new JIT. This model will consist of Task 1 to Task 8 teams involving the group, section, division, category, company, affiliated companies, non-affiliated companies, and overseas affiliates.
