Welcome to Lesson 9 on the topic of Standard Work. In this lesson we will discuss the concept of Standard Work, and its use in Mixed Model line design.
Here is what we will cover in this lesson on Standard Work:
1. The benefits of Standard Work. Standard Work is a foundational element of Lean, and we’ll review why it is so important.
2. Creating and using Standard Work Definitions. This is the format that we use and recommend, to document your Standard Work.
3. How to create Graphical Work Instructions. Users of Standard Work need to have an easy way to be reminded of the work steps and quality checks.
