This Course is a great way to introduce people to the concept of Standardised Work in the workplace. The course will also build upon the knowledge of people already familiar with the subject. 

The learner will understand Standardised Work is one of the most powerful but least used lean tools. By documenting the current best practice, standardised work forms the baseline for kaizen or continuous improvement. As the standard is improved, the new standard becomes the baseline for further improvements, and so on. Improving standardised work is a never-ending process. The learner will understand Standardised Work includes:

  • Takt time, which is the rate at which products must be made in a process to meet customer demand.
  • The precise work sequence in which an operator performs tasks within takt time.
  • The standard inventory, including units in machines, required to keep the process operating smoothly.
