Winner of a Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing Research

Training Within Industry, by Donald Dinero, explores a crucial piece of a Lean initiative that has been overlooked throughout U.S. industry. The Training Within Industry (TWI) program — developed by the United States during World War II — has been used by Toyota for decades! This powerful program standardizes training processes and assists front-line supervisors in teaching new operations to workers quickly and effectively.

Dinero completely explores the history and application of the four modules that compose TWI:Job Instruction — in which employees are trained to perform their tasks as quickly as they are capable with minimal waste; Job Methods — in which employees are taught how to improve their processes using existing resources; Job Relations — in which personnel problems are solved in an analytical, non-emotional manner so that employees are focused on a stated objective; and Program Development — in which robust training plans are developed to meet the particular needs of a specific plant.

Readers of Training Within Industry will see that standardized work imparts measurable continuous improvement because it sets a baseline. It establishes a framework for efficiency and innovation.

In addition, the book includes a CD containing the text of original TWI bulletins issued by the U.S. government in the 1940s. Unique and Compelling Features and Benefits:

  • Provides a key to successfully implementing Lean Thinking
  • Provides basic knowledge without any non-valued added material
  • Applies to all positions in all industries
  • Time tested - has been used for over sixty years and is still successful
