Training Within Industry (TWI) – Southern Wisconsin – Job Methods

Friday, August 10, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

$400 – $500

Event Description

One course of Optima’s three-course TWI Certification Program, this one-day workshop focuses on the skills required to improve and document current production/work methods. These skills, traditionally thought of as lean skills, can help your business processes stabilize, improve and thrive. Based on the TWI JM improvement approach, you will:

• Learn and apply the 4-step job methods improvement technique to effectively identify and eliminate waste in processes

  • Break down the job
  • Question every detail
  • Develop the new method
  • Apply the new method

• Explore the relationship between JM and Standard Work development

Who should attend:

This workshop is for supervisors, and area leads who are responsible for getting consistent safety, quality, cost and delivery results from their people and processes. Continuous improvement professionals, who are responsible for process improvement, should also attend. Will stable processes, sustained improvements, and an engaged, knowledgeable workforce help you achieve your objectives in the areas of safety, quality, cost and delivery? Commonly, lack of performance or errors within an organization occur because of undefined processes, a lack of standards or inadequate training. Good performance is the result of good people and good processes. Learn how the TWI Job Methods program can prepare leaders to define and improve processes. Understand the power of TWI “JM” and its relationship to lean tools and techniques.
