Learn how Job Methods and Job Instruction are used together to support continuous improvement initiatives within an organization. Job Method techniques will be used to breakdown work to uncover non-value adding activities and to document improved processes. Job Instruction techniques will then be used to transfer knowledge and develop the required skill to sustain the process changes. At this two-day event, you will learn these techniques and apply them at a high-mix, low volume manufacturer.
