When people think of Toyota vehicles, innovation is often the first thing that comes to mind. The company has become famous for revolutionizing vehicular design, engines, and now production methods. In a recent article from the Detroit News, Toyota showcased its production plants where cars are being built like nowhere else on earth. One century after the Henry Ford assembly line, Toyota continues to prove that even the oldest conventions can be refined. At Gresham Toyota, we’re proud to offer these innovative vehicles on our lot.
Starting in 2008, Toyota began issuing a sizable number of recalls—large for any company, but especially one that was synonymous with quality. Toyota cars and trucks have been known to be dependable and reliable for decades, which was contrary to the issues experienced in 2008. The issue turned out where engineers least expected it: dated production methods. As Toyota cars and trucks became more popular, production at old plants had simply increased, not improved. Officials realized that in order to deliver the highest quality and quantity, new methods had to be developed.
As Toyota continually creates and implements new technologies, and demand can rise or fall week by week. Toyota knew its production plants had to be adaptable. Engineers began to move vehicles on wheeled platforms, which allowed the assembly line to be changed more quickly. Additionally, they created a “metal stamping” system that can mold and create numerous shapes of car doors. These seemingly small tweaks have already had a significant impact on the vehicles. Instead of halting all production for a single adjustment, these adaptive methods allow the whole process to continue at a normal pace. This doesn’t only mean an increase in production, but also that they’re produced without undue rush, so the famous Toyota quality remains high.
