Unlike most manufacturers, Yamaha takes a total approach to piano-making: it retains complete control over virtually every component at every stage of production—even to the point of building the manufacturing equipment. Rather than assembling pianos from parts produced by outside companies or contracting with third parties to build its pianos, Yamaha designs, tests, evaluates and manufactures all major components by.

Another key advantage to Yamaha is the extent of the company's expertise in related technologies. With well-established credentials in fields such as metallurgy, chemistry and electronics—as well as more obvious areas like acoustics and woodworking—Yamaha leverages extensive internal resources to raise the standards of piano-making. The results of this inter-disciplinary approach are a steady stream of innovations and better musical instruments.
