Toyota Production System (TPS Grade IV) Certificate Program

by TMS TPS Certification Institute & Toyota Engineering Corporation Japan

Learn from the founders of Lean Management

 Toyota Production System (TPS), also known as Lean Management is considered as the world’s most successful strategy for operational excellence. This methodology was born, raised and evolved at Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan for seven decades and is now being used as a strategic weapon for businesses, governments, and institutes around the world.

Toyota Engineering Corporation (TEC) was established in early 2000 to popularize the Total Toyota Production System or Lean Management across the world. Currently, they have certified more than 5000 professionals across the globe. The Lean Senseis at TEC possess decades of hands-on experience in developing, sustaining, and improving lean management concepts at Toyota and affiliated companies

TPS certification provides the most authentic, up to date, practical knowledge and application on Toyota Production System (Lean Management).  Lean TPS Level IV certification is an essential step for manufacturing leaders to develop “must-know” practical skills in lean management.
