Standardized Work is a people focused tool designed to document work functions performed in a repeatable sequence, which are agreed to, developed and maintained by each team member, be it on the production floor or within a service and administration office environment.
Standardized Work principles follow closely the process of TWI which introduced in Japan post World War II and is a foundation to Toyota’s success in continuous improvement, and more importantly, in its ability to sustain improvements.
The purpose of Standardized Work is to establish a repeatable, predictable baseline for continuous improvement and to involve the team in both the initial and ongoing improvements to achieve the highest levels of safety, quality, delivery and productivity.
