Deciding where and how Toyota should produce a particular Lexus model in North America.
•Each team completes the tasks to be found in the Week 10 conference, deciding where and how Toyota should produce a particular Lexus model in North America, by the end of this week, in a succinct report that includes an executive summary.
To properly complete this assignment, which is found in a following topic and which is to be submitted in your Study Group conference, it will be important for each team to consider the following points:
•Assignment Proper. Key to solving the assignment proper, possibly with supporting files, is to tackle its various parts one by one, fully answering each requirement. In this regard, don’t get hung up on one exercise; move on to the next one. Do refer back to prior seminars or other courses (properly cited of course) if they included any of the quantitative techniques required here
To remain motivated, remember that the overall learning goal here is to familiarize each team member with the OM techniques and concepts involved, not to make you a Toyota production planner
•Explain the team’s answers in succinct but good English, particularly if the team wishes to obtain an above-task grade
