Standard Work Using Training Within Industry (TWI)

Training Within Industry (TWI) created the foundation for standard work processes adopted by Toyota and many other manufacturers. The methodology uses a learn-by-doing approach in teaching essential skills for supervisors and team leaders. TWIs core programs include **Job Relations** (JR), to build positive employee relations; **Job Instruction** (JI) on how to perform jobs correctly and safely; and **Job Methods** (JM), to improve how jobs are done.

During this series of four 4-hour classes, learn how to develop and enhance your job or standardized work instructions by incorporating TWI concepts.
