We will summarise them briefly and invite the reader to go to the original text for more details (Fujimoto, 1997). The "Human Fitting Automation" strategy aims to improve working conditions by automating the most physically demanding jobs one by one. It was adopted in the Toyota Tahara factory, and also in the Nissan Kyushu one. The "Human-Motivating Automation" strategy aims not only to improve working conditions, but also the work content using automation in particular to allow one working team to completely assemble part or the whole of a vehicle.
According to Koichi Shimokawa, Ulrich Jurgens and Takalliro Fujimoto, the causes are the objectives, the contexts and the time of automation which have differed from firm to firm. Of course, everybody is concerned with competitiveness, they write. But some manufacturers brought automation to improve working conditions, others to face the variety in demand, others to increase· the product quality and others yet to master new technologies. These differences in priority are rooted either in the constraints of the work market, or in the changes in car demand, or in the relationship with other manufacturers.
