The employees at Bridgestone Software work with cheerful, fun,
and positive attitudes to make people’s lives more fulfilling.
Bridgestone Software’s "Monozukuri (making thins)" begins with all the effort we make from development and continues all the way through to our customers’ utilization after delivery.
We will continue to challenge ourselves today and in the future to become the "Monozukuri" company that customers continue to choose.
The systems supporting Bridgestone’s core business consist of the Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) systems, such as product planning and tire design; Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems, such as production, logistics, and sales; and the management and common operations systems, such as finance, accounting, and procurement. Bridgestone Software develops and operates all of these systems.
IT engineers develop and operate a system for supporting the planning, design, and production of tires; a system for supporting production, sales, inventory control, and logistics; and a system for supporting finance, accounting, procurement, human resources, labor affairs and other operations.
Project manager & Leader
As the person responsible for a project, project managers and leaders create overall project plans, such as the requirement definition, budgeting, and schedule management. They also need to have good communication skills to drive a project with members.
To support the foundation of the Bridgestone Group’s business, the infrastructure sector offer a one-stop-service for the management, and operation of the IT infrastructure, as well as the management of terminals and the email system. By leveraging our advanced knowledge of IT, which allows us to offer high-quality operation of infrastructure networks, as well as the maintenance and management of servers and systems, we strive to improve operational efficiency and the business performance of all group companies.

We are also taking a proactive approach to strengthening the group’s capabilities for architecture that corresponds to a new field requiring high-speed development and continuous delivery, called Mode 2 and SoE (System of Engagement), as well as development technology, the introduction of process and data engineering. Another key role is to improve the standard development template for system development and training.
