Implement Standard Work

Step 8 - Identify and Implement the Best Practices

Course Summary

 Why Develop Standard Work?
This training course is focused on the procedure for defining and  implementing the best practices. The best quality, cost and delivery  metrics will be achieved by implementing the best practices and giving  employees the training to follow them effectively.

What is the definition of Standard Work?
Every good business tries to get their employees to use the best  methods for achieving successful results. This is a common sense  approach to do things right, the first time. However, what actually  happens is that business owners do not follow through to implement these  best practices throughout their organization. This leads to  inconsistencies and variation in results. Standard Work is the method  for defining these best practices and ensuring that every employee is  following them to deliver value to their customers.

What steps are involved in implementing Standard Work?
There are five steps to implementing a standard work process:
    1. Identify and define the best practice, that delivers a quality result, consistently.
     2. Document the activities for performing the best practice, and make it visual using a combination of pictures and text
    3. Place the standard work document at each work station where this process is being performed.
    4. Train the employees to do the tasks as defined in the Standard Work document.
    5. Conduct a periodic audit of the employees performing the standard  work to ensure each employee is following the defined procedure.

How does Standard Work improve the business results?
Standard Work has a direct influence on the way an employee performs  their job. It will improve the Quality, Cost and Delivery metrics that  most lean organizations use to track and trend their business success.  Everyone working in the business knows that they all have the same  ability to generate the same results as long as they follow the same  best practice.
