Video explains the principle of standard work.

Standard Work in Lean Six Sigma is a very misunderstood topic. We explain Standard Work in this video and show you how to begin applying this principle today.

Taiichi Ohno is credited with having said:

When there is no standard, there is no Kaizen

In other words, when a process is performed unsystematically in different ways, then:

  1. There can be no basis for comparison (before/after)
  2. One cannot objectively tell if there was a difference or change
  3. No improvement is possible in regards to Time, Quality, Quantity, Cost, etc.

In this 5:36 minute Premium HD Video, we cover the following topics:

  1. What is Standardization
  2. Why is Standardization Important?
  3. View an example of a Standard Work Instruction Sheet – a practical element in the practice of Standard Work.

And, premium members will be able to download a Standard Work Instruction Template as part of your premium membership.
