Standardized Work is the foundation for improvement efforts. Working with WMEP to document your current best practices using Standardized Work will help your company ensure all processes are well sequenced, organized, and repeatedly followed correctly.
Standardized Work will help your company proactively improve your training methods by setting a standard that will improve quality and reduce waste due to variation. Employees will feel more engaged and have a better understanding of what is expected of them.
Standardized Work benefits include:
Increase in process predictability and measurement of results
Proactively addressing the looming retirement bubble
Reducing errors so management has more time for strategic objectives
Lessen the impact of loss of employees
Without process documentation, manufacturers find themselves in constant struggle as their most knowledgeable employees leave. Standardized Work is far more than just documenting, it allows a company to have the necessary training tools to ensure a proper transition between employees.
