About this item

Graupp, a TWI trainer, and Wrona, a Lean consultant, provide a workbook for supervisors on how to apply the four-step method for each program of TWI (Training Within Industry) to improve productivity in manufacturing. They discuss the fundamentals of the TWI program, then the steps of job instruction, job safety, job methods improvement, and job relations, with examples and team exercises. This edition has been updated with new terminology and practice, revised forms and tools, new examples of job instruction breakdowns, new sections on job safety and making a balanced breakdown, and a new chapter on the TWI problem-solving methodology. It also has a new introduction with a more complete description of how TWI was reintroduced into American industry, with new information on ESCO-Syracuse and Toyota, as well as a new conclusion that compares the historical role of TWI with what companies are doing today.
