Toyota Looking For More People At Assembly Lines & Less Robots


Toyota Motor Corporation is the top automaker when it comes to using robots for its vehicle production. This was a major factor which made it the top automaker with annual vehicle production surpassing its competitors. Relying on robots to make your vehicles has advantages and disadvantages. Yes, its good for rapidly producing cars because robots are more accurate in what they do than humans, but there are things only humans can differentiate.

In the quest to maintain its No.1 position and pushing more and more cars into the market will at some point increase defects and this is what happened to Toyota a few years ago with the sticky accelerator pedal case. You need humans to assure each vehicle comes out as it should be, and the automaker is now bringing them back.

Toyota is now looking to bring back skilful technicians to improve production lines and manufacturing process. These craftsmen were used to be called ‘gods’ (Kami-sama) in the automaker’s plants because of their increased skills. And by bringing back the Kami-sama, Toyota is also confirming CEO Akio Toyoda’s new strategy that won’t concentrate that much on volumes, but more on its vehicles’ quality and driving enjoyment.
