OpenChain + Toyota Case Study: Kaizen and Open Source spur Innovation across the Global Supply Chain

By 2019-06-18July 31st, 2019News

The OpenChain Project is delighted to announced the immediate availability of a case study with Toyota explaining how Kaizen and Open Source spur innovation across the global supply chain. This case study is an exceptionally important milestone for our project, marking the beginning of a series of case studies explaining the “path to conformance” in OpenChain, and providing real-world snapshots of the journeys being undertaken by market leaders. We have worked together with Endo San from the Toyota IP team in crafting this case study and are indebted to his team for clear, concise insights into the decision-making process of one of the world’s largest car companies as it relates to open source technology.

The OpenChain Project counts Toyota among its board members and we have initiated a long-term collaboration focused on ensuring Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 suppliers become aware of and are supported in adopting the OpenChain industry standard for open source compliance in the supply chain.
