Lesson 310 – Implement Standard Work


In the Level 2 – Lean Practitioner training course you learned how Step 8 – Implement Standard Work is focused on identifying and documenting the best practices to be able to deliver a consistent and repeatable output on-time, every time!

You learned that Standard Work defines the best practices and allows everyone to follow the best methods to achieve the best results.

In the Level 3 – Lean Expert training course, you will learn about the detailed application and integration of Step 8 – Implement Standard Work as part of a continuous process improvement methodology.

Transformation requires a plan and an infrastructure that is focused on waste reduction to improve value for the customer. It also requires a strong management team that is willing to support the process because the right kind of change does not happen by chance!

In Step 7 – Balance the Workload, you learned how to improve flow by balancing two critical factors, which are 1) work content and 2) work scheduling. In this next step, you will learn how to use Standard Work to sustain the gains.
