Without standards, there’s no way to know if your continuous improvement efforts move the needle in the right direction.
Standard Work is defined as the most effective combination of people, materials, and equipment. An essential building block in the Lean management system, Standard Work serves as the basis for evaluation and improvement.
The Standard Work methodology defines and documents best practices that make it possible to complete tasks the same way each time, eliminating the variables that can lead to quality issues and wasted time and resources.
Whether you’re struggling to get waste under control, achieve operational consistency, or establish a Lean culture, our Standard Work video training series can help you build a foundation for sustainable, long-term improvements in any work environment.
