A major change in IATF 16949 is that it incorporates many best practices that were once customer specific requirements. The goal of integrating these requirements is to promote industry standardisation and streamline the number of customer-specific requirements. Standard Work is one of these newly added requirements. In section 18.104.22.168, it states that “The organisations shall ensure that standardised work documents are: –
a) Communicated to and understood by employeesb) Legiblec) Presented in the language of the personnel responsible to follow themd) Accessible for use at the designated work area(s).
The term Standardisation is often misunderstood and therefore poorly implemented by many organisations.
Standardised work is often thought to be mainly a set of instructions for the operators. It evokes images of industrial engineers with stopwatches spying on the workforce by squeezing out of them every second of productivity.
However, one of the most powerful uses of standardised work is the identification and elimination of waste.
Until standards are defined in any operation, it is not possible to truly make improvements.
This workshop is designed for anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of the concept of Standard Work. It specifically focuses on demystifying some of the tools traditionally used by academics and management consultants, by providing practical advice and guidance.
Middle, senior production managers, or Continuous Improvement managers, who wish to gain a deeper understanding of how to introduce, support, and implement standardisation
