Training Within Industry (TWI) is an integral part of Lean and aims to deliver a better-skilled workforce, improved labor and management relations, productivity improvements and a focus on continuous improvement.

Central to TWI are three core programs called Job Instruction (JI), Job Methods (JM) and Job Relations (JR). These programs address the processes of instructing people on the best way to perform jobs, continuous improvement, and improved communication and leadership skills. This training presentation package is closely based on the original TWI training manuals developed by the TWI Service.

1. JOB INSTRUCTION TRAINING (JI): Train supervisors in how to instruct a person to perform a job correctly and safely; and to be productive as quickly as possible, while creating less scrap, rework, and damage to tools and equipment.

2. JJOB RELATIONS TRAINING (JR): Train supervisors in how to solve personnel problems using an analytical, non-emotional method combined with some basic foundations of human relations.

3. JOB METHODS TRAINING (JM): Train supervisors in how to improve the way jobs are performed in order to consistently produce greater quantities of quality products in less time using available manpower, machines and materials.

This training package is specially tailored for your organization's Internal TWI or On-The-Job Trainer. The training slides can be used to conduct training in the classroom (and complement your own training materials), with practice demonstrations by participants done either in the classroom and/or shopfloor as appropriate. The job aids such as Job Breakdown Sheet, Training Timetable, JBS for Work Analysis, etc. can be put to immediate use or customized.

You may deliver each TWI program/module separately, spread them over 2-hourly sessions, or combine them to suit your operational requirements.

NOTE: This training package includes a set of training slides (Powerpoint format), worksheets (Word format), a case study (Word format) and printing guidelines for pocket cards.
