Toyota Supply Chain – Optimizing for the Digital Future
Supplier Engineering Development (SED) is responsible for ensuring smooth launch, supply continuity, and leading supplier development initiatives for all of Toyota’s North American supply base. SED utilizes an excel-based data collection system that is rather inefficient and cumbersome to work with. The Toyota project team will deliver the working prototype of a new portable data collection system.
Toyota achieves high quality new vehicle launches through effective, integrated coordination of suppliers and Toyota engineers. Students will develop and validate a new information/data recording tool that will accept data directly from the point of origin.
