Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights video series, this program shows you how the four modules of training within industry (TWI), job relations (JR), job instruction (JI), job methods (JM), and job safety (JS) work together to sustain lean manufacturing. Collectively, they generate cooperation and positive employee relations, teach supervisors how to quickly train employees to do a job correctly, establish and maintain standardized work, provide a framework for sustained continuous process improvement, and maintain a safe work environment. Learn why Toyota has included part of TWI as an essential element of the Toyota Production System since its inception.
Viewers will learn how Albany International, a manufacturer of industrial monofilaments, uses TWI to achieve reduced costs, shorter cycle times, decreased setup times, less scrap and significantly improved plant profitability.
