Process Standard Work

PROCESS STANDARD WORK

If you do not reliably produce what your customers want and your processes consume a highly variable amount of resources and time, then standard work might be the issue. Is your standard work defined? Is it followed? Is it the correct one to meet the expected outcomes? 

Standard work is the best collective known set of activities, to achieve an expected outcome regarding safety, quality, ease to learn, timing, and cost to do the work. When the process has been stabilized, standard work is used to identify process degradations and is also the basis for continuous improvement.

Workshop: Work System
Training to Standard Work

TRAINING TO STANDARD WORK

Many organizations use tacit knowledge to teach employees. Unfortunately, the most experienced employees are not necessarily the best trainers and the transfer of skills falls short of expectations.  Safety, quality, and productivity suffer while new employees are frustrated, leading to employee retention issues.

 

Using the 4-Step TWI Job Instruction method, trainers deliver highly effective and efficient job-skills training.  Job Instruction trains to break down a given job and develop the “one best way” to do it, then train others to perform that standard work consistently, repeatedly, and conscientiously.  Process stability is generated across all workers, at all times and lays a solid foundation for continuous improvement programs.

Making Material Flow

MAKING MATERIAL FLOW

Do you face situations when the material you need is not available where you need it to make a finished product per the schedule? This is a situation that many organizations experience frequently. Combining the management of materials organization and the management of the schedule ensures the right materials arrive at the right place and at the right time. With this structured material flow methodology, operations can produce the finished products per the schedule, satisfy their customers with on-time delivery, and eliminate hunting for material.

The workshop provides participants with the techniques to develop a material flow strategy for their facility, including containerization, use of Plan For Every Part (PFEP), design of a supermarket, and development of delivery routes.

THE VISUAL WORKPLACE

Is your shopfloor visually organized to allow employees to achieve the daily production goals with a minimum amount of waste? A visual Workplace is a lot more than posters, signs, and tape on the floor. It is a compelling operational imperative, crucial to meeting daily production goals, and central to your war on waste. It helps to reduce lead times and accelerated workflow.

 

Participants will learn about the principles, concepts, methods, and tools to develop a new language: the language of excellence made visual that holds improvement activities together and makes them sustainable. They will learn about how to make a visual implementation successful.
