Job Instruction (JI) For Learners
Job Instruction (JI) is a fundamental element of Lean and the first TWI course. Its purpose is to get people fully trained and adding value to the organization in the shortest period of time possible while preventing problems that could arise from faulty instruction. JI establishes a single best method for doing a job and allows a trainer to transfer knowledge to a learner quickly while also verifying comprehension using a simple four-step method. The "Learner" version of this JI course can be used to facilitate your own 5-day, in person, JI course. A detailed facilitator's guide is also available which includes a day by day agenda. In preparation for a live course we highly recommend facilitator's, no matter their experience level, first watch the far more detailed "facilitators" version of this same JI course where you are able to see an actual 5-day course unfold before your eyes.
In this supplemental video, Ron offers an overview of TWI including a high level explanation of the Job Relations (JR) and Job Methods (JM) programs which will be addressed in future Gemba Academy courses.
