Establishing a standard work process is critical to the functioning of any organization. The benefits of standardized work include documenting the current process for all shifts, reducing variation in the process, easier training of new employees, reducing health and safety hazards, and a baseline for improvement activities.
Establishing precise work procedures for each employee in the workflow is based on three key elements:
1) Takt time- the rate at which products must be produced to meet customer demand;
2) The exact work sequence in which the employee performs tasks within the takt time;
3) The standard inventory needed to keep the process running smoothly.
Once a standard way of working is established, it becomes subject to continuous improvement through kaizen.
