On the night of August 29, all Toyota plants in Japan ceased their operations due to a major malfunction in the software. This affected 14 of the company's facilities, including 25 assembly lines, accounting for a third of Toyota's global production.
It's worth noting that the malfunction was not caused by a cyberattack, distinguishing it from an incident that occurred in March 2022.
Initial information suggests that the problem was with the software responsible for managing the supply of car assembly components.
Currently, an investigation into the causes of this incident is underway, and efforts are being made to rectify its consequences. Toyota expressed hope to restart production by August 30.
