Standard Work to Standard Training
Join us on a walk through the Cummins Midrange Engine Plant (CMEP) LEAN journey and hear about the successes and challenges along the way. We started with developing Standardized Work. Once we had it fully implemented we then focused on training our employees using TWI (Training Within Industry) JI (Job Instruction). Now our focus is geared toward teaching employees TWI JM (Job Method) to use during Kaizen events. The end goal is to have all 600+ employees to think like an Industrial Engineer and make their jobs as LEAN as possible.
