Ford’s Maraimalai plant near Chennai
Delivery and Logistics : Toyota came up with a supplier development programme to maintain their 100% delivery rate. This involves issuing each supplier a scorecard with red, yellow or green to indicate whether performance is good or to identify if there are potential issues. Where suppliers score a ‘red’ warning, Toyota sends it teams to help correct the issues. The car maker’s expectations for quality in manufacturing as well as logistics are very high.
