With 14 plants in North America, 48,000-plus team members, and more than a million cars produced each year, Toyota is an expert in efficiency and lean manufacturing practices. Inherently, and without intervention, the potential risk of injury can be high and unpredictable.
StrongArm’s ability to integrate FUSE data with the company’s existing production data proved to be a powerful and efficient engine for improvement.
In fact, through real-time haptic feedback, 83% of participating team members improved lifting techniques and a 15% injury risk reduction was realized sitewide.
StrongArm and Toyota continue to work closely together on scheduling optimization, high-risk team member coaching, and critical engineering improvements to further reduce risk of injury.
"FUSE is a game-changer. In less than a month, 83% of team members improved lifting techniques from haptics alone."
