Standard Work

November 4th 2021 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.
