Vorfall in Japan: Toyota findet Grund für Produktionsausfall

DThe recent production disruption at Japan’s largest car manufacturer, Toyota, was caused by insufficient storage space on servers. According to the Volkswagen rival, some servers used for processing spare parts orders were no longer available after maintenance work. Toyota clarified that the incident, which resulted in a domestic production halt for approximately one day, was not a cyber attack.

Due to insufficient storage space, an error occurred during maintenance, resulting in the system coming to a halt. Toyota stated that the system has been restored after transferring the data to a server with a larger capacity.

Due to the issue, the operation of 25 production lines in 12 out of the 14 domestic assembly plants of Toyota was disrupted last week. Later that day, the remaining 28 manufacturing lines were also shut down. The production was resumed the following day.
