Standard Work Online

April 13th 2022 08:00 am to 12:00 pm at LIVE ONLINE VIA ZOOM

“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.

Setup Reduction

May 18th 2022 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Excellent workshop for machine operators! Send teams to learn how to reduce setup times and eliminate waste on virtually any operation or machine. Application of the Setup Reduction process will identify many forms of waste. It is the elimination of these wastes that will allow a company to realize the benefits of implementing this approach. Participants are asked to record a 10-15 minute video of a machine set up to include footage from the last good piece of the previous product/run to the first good piece of the next product/run. This would include all the “tear-down” process of the current product/run as well as the preparation work involved with the new product/run (material handling, paperwork, tool changeover, etc..). A .mov file format works best.

Visual Management & 5S Improvements

July 20th 2022 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Customers, employees and suppliers can tell a well-run plant and office without a narrated tour. The visual clues are everywhere. This is a straight-forward approach that impacts your customer and employee image, productivity and sales. The many facets of visual management and 5S can allow employees to show pride and organization in their area, give them performance feedback, provide incentive to hit their goals, illustrate what is expected of them and recognize a job well done. These techniques can help overcome language and reading barriers and boost learning retention too.

Standard Work

August 3rd 2022 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.

Setup Reduction

September 14th 2022 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

Excellent workshop for machine operators! Send teams to learn how to reduce setup times and eliminate waste on virtually any operation or machine. Participants will learn the tools necessary to conduct a setup reduction event.  These tools will then be applied to a simulated process, where they will identify wastes, make improvements and track their progress. Various options to “sustain the gains” achieved during the process will also be covered. Participants are asked to record a 10-15 minute video of a machine set up to include footage from the last good piece of the previous product/run to the first good piece of the next product/run. This would include all the “tear-down” process of the current product/run as well as the preparation work involved with the new product/run (material handling, paperwork, tool changeover, etc..).
