Standard Work is the primary building block in your lean system, and will deliver benefits in safety, quality, delivery and cost measures to the business if applied correctly.
Standard work is the practice of setting, communicating, following, and improving standards.
Establishing standard work begins with creating, clarifying, and sharing information about the most efficient method currently known to perform a task. Once this information has been shared, everyone practices this standard consistently so that the work is done the best way every time. This is where continuous improvement comes into play; standard work isn't a "set it and forget it" process, announced once and then permanently unchanging. Instead, everyone should work to improve the standard, and share new best practices as they're discovered.
Standard work creates stability and consistency within a continuous improvement system by providing a baseline.
