Event: Training Within Industry Summit

The people side of lean

Published: Monday, March 15, 2010 - 14:16

(TWI Institute: Liverpool, NY) -- Training within industry is needed more now, in this down economy, than ever before. It was in a time of crisis that the Training Within Industry (TWI) Service proved its worth more than 60 years ago. Today, leading organizations are turning to training within industry again and the TWI Institute is heeding the call. Join them at the 2010 TWI Summit, May 11–12, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Green Valley Ranch Resort.

Rediscover using standardized methods of work allowing managers to understand what is happening on the shop floor. Create those standards by first breaking the job down. Develop the problem solving skills of people. The result is the confident people side of lean. 

Why are organizations turning to TWI? 

  • Get more done with less machines and manpower
  • Improve quality, reduce scrap by achieving standard work across workers and shifts
  • Reduce safety incidents
  • Decrease training time, especially for temporary workers
  • Reduce labor hours
  • Reduce grievances
  • Transfer knowledge from a skilled, retiring work force to an unskilled, green work force

The multitude of TWI Summit’s presenters are testiment to the growth of TWI. Presentations are more than overviews of TWI courses; they are focused on best practices, sustainability of TWI, and other issues related to maturing rollouts.
