Standardized Work & Auditing


"A foundational principle of Lean/Continuous Improvement is setting standards aimed at eliminating waste through participation of all employees." Participants will work on the importance of consistent job instructions, their methodology, quality control and standard work. "Visual Factory" systems and the interactive use of visual controls using a simulation will show the balance of maximizing pictures and minimizing words. Standardized Work is developed using four basic steps: Document (data and observation), Train, Sustain (Audit), Improve (P-D-C-A).
