Kaizen of Standardized Work

Work standardization is the standardization of work, focused on the motion of man, to produce most effectively by combining the work of man and machine. No good result can be expected in terms of quality, productivity, cost and safety, when each person is working arbitrarily in their own way.

This program aimed to guide through participant the methodology of work standardization through Kaizen (Kaizen of standardized work).

At the end of this training, participants should be able to:

Understand the basic methodology of work standardization

Carry out time and motion study

Visualize work load through work balancing methodology

Able to compile work standard as per Kaizen methodology


Day 1

Ø Time & Motion Study

Important points during time study

Basic method & requirements

Study worksheet & calculations

Workshop (carry out the time study analysis)

Ø Line Balancing

Visualize workload by Yamazumi Chartagainst Takt Time

Workshop (visualize operator workload by using Yamazumi chart)

Ø Capacity Sheet

Visualize process capacity

Compilation method

Workshop (visualize the process capacity by using capacity sheet)

Day 2

Ø Work Combination Table

Visualize the combination of motion of operator and machine

Compilation method

Workshop (convert the time study analysis data to work combination table)

Ø Standardized Work Chart

Visualize scope of work of operator

Three elements of standardized work

Compilation method

Workshop (to create standardized work)
