Standard Work

December 19th 2018 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis and Design for Manufacturability and Assembly

February 28th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

In this workshop, you will learn two different tools for improving new and existing designs: FMEA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate a design and determine potential negative effects, prioritize the effects by quantifying their magnitude, and identify and implement actions to address the effects. DFMA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate components to ensure they are manufacturable, evaluate parts to ensure they are “necessary,” and evaluate the characteristics of an assembly: part-to-operator interface, part-to-part interface, fastening methodology, non-value steps.
