Toyota, the company that bequeathed the world and HMRC "LEAN", has had to issue yet another recall of cars along with Nissan and Honda.
Reuters reports that 3.4 million cars are being recalled because of issues over airbags.
As per a loyal reader this morning:
"LESSONS FROM THE WHITEBOARD STILL NOT LEARNT...Sadly I suspect that HMRC will not give up using LEAN, whatever the cost!
Memo to all managers and evangelista's
Its all gone pear-shaped, again!
Manufacturer's of what are sometimes known as "rice burners" such as Toyota, Nissan & Honda would appear to have been involved in yet another round of multi-millon, world-wide vehicle recalls involving safety issues (don't forget, recalls are usually a last resort after ignoring the problem with collective insertion of heads into places where the sun don't shine).
Is there a lesson to be learnt from this?
There is, despite all the hype, Pacesetter/Lean systems, as developed from the land of the rising sunny (Nissan), are unable to cope with the rigours of mass production environments.
What does this mean? Despite years of man/women hours and billions of Yen, Pounds and Dollars it is now there for all to see, it does not work, and continues to fail regularly.
Watch out for falling lemmings and other practitioners of hari kari (that's falling on your sword for Excom!)."
Tax does have to be taxing.
