The methods and tools cylinder is one of the largest when it comes to optimizing a business. This cylinder includes everything from workflow optimization to inventory management to office practices. There are numerous tools and methods needed by the people who perform the work. As you may know many of these tools were polished into perfection by the Toyota Corporation. Toyota has been successful because they have made it part of their DNA, part of everything they do, a way of looking at something as a system. Just like The Straight6™ it is part of a bigger system. The engine of the vehicle needs tools and methods to be used to keep it running at its peak performance.
