Toyota Material Handling is putting the spotlight at this year’s CeMAT on lean principles, which derive from the Toyota Production System (TPS). Visitors have the perfect opportunity to get to know and try out the Toyota "lean way of thinking". Skilled experts at the "Logiconomi Forum" are on hand to give information on important topics such as safety, automation or connectivity. One major highlight is a keynote speech by Sam Nomura, when the renowned Japanese representative for the Toyota Production System will share his views on lean thinking.
