Webinar - Production Management within Toyota, the secret of the last small car - The Yaris - made in France and profitable

Home>Conferences>Webinar Toyota Production Management

Toyota Production Management


In a large majority of industries in France and around the world, it is possible to hear words like 5S, Kanban, 5 whys, Lean Manufacturing…

However, these words have been usurped, used and misused so much that they ended up disappointing. Marris Consulting invites you to "go back to basics" and invites you to a webinar to discover the company that created this principle of industrial excellence and understand the real purpose of these methods that have made production management at TOYOTA one of the pillars of its profitability.

The Yaris represents a third of the cars manufactured in France. It was voted car of the year in 2021. The 5,000-employee factory is profitable despite the low margins inherent in small B-segment cars. Production volumes and workforces have only grown since the inauguration of the factory in 2000. It's in France. It is now. It works well. It is relevant to all industries (with ad hoc adaptations for example on flow management).

Come and understand what real Lean is…good Lean…the Toyota France Way.

This webinar, in French, has been hosted by Reynald Debaut-Henocque, Former Vice-President Production at Toyota France, who contributed to this great story by being one of the first recruits, accompanied by Philip Marris, CEO of Marris Consulting.

The end of the webinar is devoted to a question and answer session.

Reynald Debaut Henocque

Reynald Debaut-Henocque

From 1981 to 1999 he forged a career as Quality Director in equipment manufacturers accompanying the revolution in quality procedures. Its experience has been built not only with European but also North American manufacturers. In 1993, he set up the continuous improvement branch in Europe of the BTR group. In 1999, he joined the Toyota group as Quality Director of TMMF (Toyota Motor Manufacturing France) and succeeded in obtaining the 1st Warranty Awards when the Yaris “made in France” was launched.

He then broadened his horizons by occupying the positions of Production Director then Supply Chain Director and participated in the success of an industrial site which took up the challenge of producing B-segment vehicles in France, more than 3 million in 20 years. As Vice-President of Production, he then prepared the site to produce 3 million vehicles in 10 years. He was one of the key players in the success of Toyota Motor Manufacturing France.
