Toyota recently worked with the City of Frisco, Dallas County, Parkland Hospital in Dallas and the University of Louisville vaccination hubs to help facilitate their administration of the COVID-19 vaccine to citizens. The operation was akin to a car assembly line — running smoothly, expertly and methodically – and by applying Toyota Production System principles, they were able to help speed up the process and improve efficiency.
For nearly three decades, Toyota has helped countless businesses, nonprofits and community organizations across industries unlock and tap into their full potential by providing effective strategies and hands-on guidance through its Toyota Production System Support Center (TSSC). With a wealth of expertise in efficiency, the automaker willingly shares successful tactics and resources with other companies and organizations to help them stay nimble and competitive in their respective fields. This approach has shown that small improvements can make a big difference, especially when supporting people in need.
Toyota knows that when good ideas are shared, great things can happen, and thanks to Toyota’s support, organizers were able to decrease wait times, while increasing the number of vaccines per hour. Working together for the greater good is what strengthens communities and builds strong bonds that serve everyone.
