Dinero, Donald A.


h3 2006 Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing Research /h3 p b i Training Within Industry /i /b, 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. /p p Dinero completely explores the history and application of the four modules that compose TWI: i Job Instruction /i -- in which employees are trained to perform their tasks as quickly as they are capable with minimal waste; i Job Methods /i -- in which employees are taught how to improve their processes using existing resources; i Job Relations /i -- in which personnel problems are solved in an analytical, non-emotional manner so that employees are focused on a stated objective; and i Program Development /i -- in which robust training plans are developed to meet the particular needs of a specific plant. p Readers of b i Training Within Industry /i /b will see that standardized work imparts measurable continuous improvement because it sets a baseline. It establishes a framework for efficiency and innovation. /p p In addition, the book includes a CD containing the text of original TWI bulletins issued by the U.S. government in the 1940s. /p h4 Unique and Compelling Features and Benefits: /h4 UL LI Provides a key to successfully implementing Lean Thinking /LI LI Provides basic knowledge without any non-valued added material /LI LI Applies to all positions in all industries /LI LI Timetested - has been used for over sixty years and is still successful /LI /ULDinero, Donald A. is the author of 'Training Within Industry The Foundation Of Lean', published 2005 under ISBN 9781563273070 and ISBN 1563273071.
