About the Program:

How do companies like Toyota assure consistent, reliable products while utilizing inherently variable human beings in their production processes? The answer is Standard Work, based on methodologies developed before World War II in the United States. Standard Work is fundamental to successful Lean implementation. Applications of standard work analysis and methods improvement are essential tools for problem solving, cellular manufacturing, material flow improvements, office process improvements, and even management process control.

Standard work is the foundation of an effective Lean culture. Standard Work has been influenced by IE (Industrial Engineering), TWI (Training within Industry), and TPS (Toyota Production System).

This presentation will briefly introduce Standard Work definitions, descriptions, and origins. It will include an example of Standard Work application based on videotaped process analyzed using video-based time study software.
