1 Standardized Work Creating Continuous Flow ProcessCoachingIncorporatedPresented by:Brian D Krichbaum
2 Standardized Work Definition A detailed and documented system in which production workers both develop and follow a repeatable sequence of tasks within a work assignment. The standardized work sequence represents the best practices for the operator to follow in the completion of his/her job.
3 Standardized Work Elements Takt time – Demand RateCycle Time – Production TimeWork Sequence
4 Standardized Work Takt Time Takt Time - the demand rate of production, the rate at which we sell our product or service.Takt is a German musical term which refers to the pace, or drumbeat of a musical score. The concept of takt keeps our activities on pace much as the metronome keeps the musician on the beat.
5 Standardized Work The Tools Process Instruction SheetsStandardized Work Analysis Sheet (Cell Layout)Time Observation SheetOperator Balance ChartStandard Work Combination Sheet
6 Standardized Work Process Instruction Sheets DefinitionDetailed, visual instructions written from the perspective of the operator which detail the sequence, methods, tools required and critical to quality characteristics of an operation.
7 Standardized Work Cell Layout DefinitionDetailed, visual representation of the location of everything in the workcell, including workstations, parts racks and storage areas, and operators.Used to plan the layout of cells, analyze the amount of walking built into the process and to institutionalize improvements
8 Standardized Work Time Observation Exercise Job Descriptions:Production Operators – Remove labels from 3” x 3” blocksPacker – Pack boxes and maintain suppliesIndustrial Engineer – Conduct time studies
9 Standardized Work Time Observation Exercise Work InstructionsObtain Full Box of BlocksEmpty Box – Place Blocks on TableRemove 1 blue label from each blockRemove 1 yellow label from each blockRemove 1 red label from each blockRepack BoxReturn to storage area
11 Standardized Work Operator Balance Charts DefinitionA graphical representation of the times required by each operator in a cell to complete their individual work elements.Operator balance charts are used to distribute work and ensure work is being completed near takt.
13 Standardized Work Equipment Guidelines Before investing in more equipment:Eliminate waste in the machine cycleSplit apart tasks at the bottlenecks; use more than one machineInstall multiple machines at the bottlenecksCreate another cellWhen there are no other choices, operate the bottleneck in a decoupled manner (batch, not flow)8.
