Tokai Rubber Industries Poland Supports Toyota Production System with IFS Applications

Tokai Rubber Industries management decided to purchase and implement IFS Applications™ even before the plant in Poland was established. The most important criterion for selecting the ERP solution was that its functionality enabled it to be customized to meet the company’s requirements. Moreover, IFS Poland was able to provide an experienced team of consultants and programmers, which was a major advantage. The company uses a typical Japanese approach to aggregated monthly production planning and production using the visual kanban/pull system. Since Toyota products are collected from the warehouse three times a day,  electronic data interchange (EDI) lets TRI process e-invoices in just four hours, which helps management meet requirements for quick reporting.
