Training Within Industry: Job Methods
Training Within Industry is the structural genesis of Lean Manufacturing and the heart of Kaizen – the practice of continuous improvements. From the Toyota Production System to the standardization of training retail sales clerks, Training Within Industry is one of the original document sets provided to Toyota after World War 2 by the United States Government, and it proves that Toyota’s true innovation came from these structured documents. The training material contained in this 8.5 X 11 inches, 86 page Training Within Industry book is as applicable today as it was when it was first written down, decades ago.
The Job Methods Training Program is based upon the idea that in teaching the methods behind a job, wasteful behavior and wasteful steps within a job can be reduced, if not eliminated. Utilizing the thoughts and ideas presented in this book, you will learn how to:
Break down a job to its base steps
Utilize the steps of a proper job breakdown
More effectively utilize manpower, machines and materials
Create streamlined, more efficient jobs
By utilizing not only supervisors but also regular employees, the Job Methods book teaches that everyone has valuable input and everyone’s views should be taken into consideration when implementing changes. Through practice, breakdowns and repetition, the T.W.I. Job Methods book leads the way to an efficient, more streamlined work force. –Publisher
