This principle consists of the “Total Development System, TDS”, “Total Production System, TPS”, “Total Marketing System, TMS”, “Total Intelligence Management System, TIS”, and “Total Job Quality Management System, TJS”. It aims to realize an integrated form of a next- generation management strategy.

Its validity has also been verified through its application within the Toyota Motor Corporation, Toyota group companies, and others.
