Lean Sparks Training Within Industry Movement
The inability to maintain standard work is a principal reason why many Continuous Improvement activities fail. Training Within Industry (TWI) is a proven, systematic method for standardizing the way supervisors, team leaders and others drive productivity and achieve consistent results. The program creates an environment in which jobs are performed the same way, by all team members, and where problem solving is done at the operator level.
The programs include:
- The objective of Job Instruction (JI) is to help supervisors develop a well-trained workforce resulting in less scrap and rework, fewer accidents, and less tool and equipment damage. Supervisors are taught how to effectively break down a job for instruction.
- The aim of the Job Methods (JM) Training program is to help produce greater quantities of quality products in less time by making the best use of the people, machines, and materials now available
- Problems come in two basic forms – those dealing with products and processes, and those dealing with human behavior and relationships. Job Relations (JR) emphasizes that people must be treated as individuals.
