Book: TWI Case Studies

Training-within-industry views on standard work, continuous improvement, and teamwork

Published: Wednesday, April 20, 2011 - 11:58

(CRC Press: Boca Raton, FL) -- TWI Case Studies: Standard Work, Continuous Improvement, and Teamwork, by Donald A. Dinero (CRC Press, 2011) provides the insight of leading experts to assist in the execution of training within industry (TWI), a game-changing business tool. Presented as a series of case studies from corporations with a range of products and needs, the book demonstrates how TWI can benefit any and all organizations regardless of industry. 

TWI Case Studies details specific activities decision makers need to accomplish to successfully incorporate TWI into the business culture, including the 10 points for implementing and sustaining TWI “J” programs. The case studies describe the use of TWI programs at some of the world’s leading companies, including IBM, Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., and US Synthetic.

Author Donald A. Dinero has more than 40 years of experience designing and implementing manufacturing methods and processes, and is the principal of the TWI Learning Partnership. He has addressed problems in all aspects of operations, including change management, personnel, labor unions, production systems, and production control. 

His bachelor of science in mechanical engineering is from the University of Rochester and his master of business administration and master of science in career and human resource development are from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Dinero deliberately sought degrees in these areas so that he would have a balanced academic background in technology, business, and organization development. He received his professional engineering license in 1983 and his certification in production and inventory control from APICS The Association for Operations Management in 1986. His book, Training Within Industry: The Foundation of Lean (CRC Press, 2005) won a Shingo Prize for Research in 2006. He welcomes all input and feedback and can be contacted at dadinero@TWILearningPartnership.com.
