Toyota Social Support Center

Who we are

Toyota Social Support Center (TSSC) was established in 2020 as the window of TDEM to collaborate with external organizations across Asia to help them enhance productivity, maximize available resources, and improve quality and safety, toward Toyota’s larger goal of producing happiness for all. Our contribution builds on the Toyota Production System (TPS) philosophies & our long experiences in the automotive-manufacturing industry.

Toyota Production System (TPS)

TPS is our philosophy aiming to create a productive work in both quality and cost perspective, by eliminating waste. It consists of 2 main pillars: Just-in-time (JIT) and Jidoka (Autonomation), founded on the safe workplace & stable quality as per the Toyota Way, which focuses on the continuous improvement & respect for people.

Creating Smiles in a Hospital in Cambodia

Driving “SMART Hospital” in Bangbo, Samut Prakarn, Thailand

Starting from January 2020, TSSC has been working with the Bangbo Hospital, Samutprakarn, Thailand, toward its “SMART hospital” policy to create a lean operation and enable the hospital to treat a larger number of patients.

Phase 1 & 2 (Jan’20 – Feb’21): Reduce Outpatient’s Waiting Time and Walking Distance

  • Shortened lead time in the dispensary system by visualizing and rearranging the workflow process.
  • Reduced patients’ waiting time by leveling (heijunka) the slot ratio and rearranging the operation flow to maximize the resource utilization.

Phase 3 (Apr’21 – Jul’21): Reduce Inpatient’s Waiting Time

  • Increase the productivity of medical equipment management by eliminating redundant processes and centralizing the whole process.
