Job Shop Lean integrates techniques from the Toyota Production System (TPS) that apply to high-mix low-volume with the science of Group Technology and Cellular Manufacturing (GT/CM) to replace those parts of the TPS that pertain solely to high-volume, repeatable processes. GT/CM is the technical solution to Lean for high-mix low-volume. Toyota provides the tools to sustain GT/CM, especially the workforce culture and Lean leadership aspects.
