This book for scholars and practitioners of Toyota Production System (TPS) and Lean manufacturing looks at TPS as a management system, in the context of organizational behavior, social sciences, management science, and engineering sciences. General systems theory is used as a framework for understanding how the pieces of TPS fit together, and current theoretical models are used to explain and justify many of Toyota's business practices and organizational preferences. The book's explanations of classical and elementary theories are accessible to managers as well as researchers. Marksberry is vice president of engineering for a custom manufacturer of emergency vehicles.
