Standard Work event (5 days) – This is a type of kaizen burst event, but specific to the implementation of standard work on a process. Ideally performed after a VSM event, the team gathers to review the process, conduct a gemba walk, and review the preparation work collected prior to the event. The team goes through a series of steps, including: Calculating takt time, creating workload balance sheet, completing standard work combination sheets to separate value added from non value added tasks, performing level loading of work across the stations, defining work sequence, calculating Standardize Work In Process (WIP), redesigning the space to optimize flow and reduce waste, implementing the layout change, and validating that the new processes and layouts are working properly.
Please contact us to discuss the scope and deliverables of your Standard Work event, so we can help you determine the duration and estimated cost.
