3 Reasons Why the Automotive Industry Can Build Homes Faster
If there ever was a good reason to buy a car this year, this would be it. Our manufacturers, foreign and domestic, know their work so well that the principles they apply can even prove effective in other industries. Namely real estate. But this isn’t just to better an industry in terms of revenue, profit and productivity. Rather, take Toyota, for example: this automotive manufacturer’s purpose goes far above and beyond that of mere profit and commerce for us to search, finance and manage our vehicles.
You Remember Hurricane Katrina, Right? The Automotive Industry Does, Too.
That’s why Toyota had recently partnered with the St. Bernard’s Project to help bring families back into their homes — those same homes that were destroyed over a decade ago. It was that storm uprooting many lives; and to this day, a lot of those families haven’t returned home — largely because the overwhelming project at hand has proven to be more than the project can handle. Until Toyota stepped in.
Now you’re probably thinking that Toyota wouldn’t know one single thing about building homes, much less building X amount of homes and bringing those families back to where they can continue their lives. Toyota does — as well as many automotive manufacturers do as well. And here’s how:
- Whiteboards — Okay, now you’re thinking we’re just playing with you. But we’re not. Here’s why these whiteboards, graphs and metrics can make a difference.
- LEAN Manufacturing — Toyota’s actually proud of this for good reason. These are principles that make manufacturing that much more efficient. How would this affect the real estate industry, you ask? Click here.
- Quality Control — Every automotive manufacturer has what’s called a “quality control expert.” Such an expert wants to make sure every part works. For the automotive industry, that’s a must — but what does that mean in terms of building homes?
We Don’t Mean to Get Sappy Here, Given the Turmoil Hurricane Katrina Had Brought to Many Families….
But Toyota — and for that matter, many automotive manufacturers — have the secrets necessary to efficient and expedient production. In an emergency, that’s essential. Since Toyota had partnered with the St. Bernard Project, over 600 families were able to return home — with tears in their eyes. Toyota took what they knew about making cars and assisted nonprofits for years. It was the St. Bernard’s Project’s turn to benefit on what makes a car excellent.
These people needed their homes excellent after what they had been through.
