Standardised Work Practices
The standard work process establishes the best sequence for each process, manufacturing and office to establish a base on which to improve. The key to business efficiency is ensuring that “best practice” procedures are followed by all employees undertaking the same task. This will also include training employees to be competent to work to the new standard procedures and at the required task times. Employees need to be involved in establishing the Standard Work procedures to engage them to perform at the required levels.
The process tools used will be directly modeled from the Lean implementation and process improvement strategies and will include the direct methodology of takt time, waste (Muda) reduction, variability, continuous improvement, and standard work analysis.
Corporate Partners Competitive Systems and Practices training establishes Lean and Continuous Improvement principles to a range of industries including manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, distribution and other process industries.
