The car industry
Toyota takes under 30 hours to build a car, others about 35

A key reason why Toyota is overtaking GM as the dominant car firm is its highly efficient production system.

Toyota groups its workers on the assembly line in teams, and gives them individual responsibility to correct mistakes before the cars reach the end of the line.

It also builds long-term relationships with its suppliers, and parts are automatically reordered as they are used on the factory floor.
