Toyota and Woven Planet at the forefront of software-first development

*Japanese only


In the automotive manufacturing industry, there is a strong need for digital transformation. While maintaining the tradition of TPS (Toyota Production System) that Toyota Motor Corporation has cultivated at its production sites, the company is trying to extend the concept of TPS to software development. This presentation will introduce the efforts of Woven Planet, a multinational group of software experts with a variety of skills, and Toyota Motor Corporation, using actual cases. The presentation will touch on Woven Planet's solutions aimed at solving vehicle software development issues, which are relatively large embedded systems, and how Toyota will utilize them in their system development.
