Improve Efficiency and Eliminate Waste

By combining the power of standard work and visual management, you can create a streamlined and efficient workflow. Standard work ensures consistency and safety, while visual management provides visibility and actionable insights. Together, these lean tools empower your team to optimize processes, reduce waste, and drive continuous improvement. Experience the benefits of a smoother workflow and unlock your team’s full potential.


This Training event will consist of the following activities:

  • Review the basic approach of managing production using a Visual Factory approach
  • Facilitate the design of the communication requirements and KPI’s for the facility along with appropriate work cells.
  • Select the appropriate metrics that support the KPI’s including mapping where and how the data will be retrieved.

Standard Work

Training consists of creating instructions in the “one best way” to complete assigned tasks and how to train employees effectively the first time.

  1. Ensures that all work is done according to the current best practice
    When Standard Work is in place, each person who performs a task does it in the manner that is the best way to do it.
  1. Simplifies and speeds training and onboarding
    When each task is documented and clearly defined, bringing on new employees and getting them up to speed is painless. There is no ambiguity, and the results are consistent, even with different trainers.
  2. Improves quality and increases customer satisfaction
    Consistency is an essential ingredient of quality. When work is done according to the Standard, quality is baked-in, and customers get exactly what they expect.
  1. Reduces defects and waste
    Errors and unnecessary waste are often the results of work that is done according to the whim of the day and not the carefully constructed Standard.
