This paper introduces the Advanced Toyota Production System (ATPS) that contributes to the innovation of automobile manufacturing fundamentals employing New JIT surpassing JIT. In order to realize this, the author has constructed the ATPS utilizing new three core models: New Global Partnering Production Model (NGP-PM), Upgrading Intelligence of Production: Highcycle Model (UIP-HM), and New Japan Global Production Model (NJ-GPM). The author has developed these models at Toyota Manufacturing USA and others, and has verified the effectiveness of the Advanced Toyota Production System.
