6: Evaluate Progress
Regular Reviews for Targeted Success
To achieve their goal of "Kaizen" or continuous improvement, Toyota has created an extensive progress evaluation structure that involves goal review, action plan review and pilot test projects. Goal review happens on a weekly, monthly and annual basis, thereby ensuring that there are no surprises on the road to meeting energy goals. Key Performance Indicators are reviewed monthly at every plant during energy meetings. Next, all plant action plans are reviewed and updated monthly by senior management to evaluate how a plant is meeting its energy reduction goals, target Energy Performance Indicator scores, and key project implementation plans. Year-end energy summary reports give plant managers a benchmark of how well they are achieving their energy objectives and the best practices they can adopt from other plants.
