IndustryWeek : TWI Promotes Quick Training, Standard Work

Here's an article about the Training Within Industry program, a key foundation of the Toyota Production System.

The article features Jim Huntzinger and mentions his upcoming TWI Summit. You can listen to my podcast with Jim about TWI here.

From the article:

Today in North America, a handful of companies have resurrected TWI, according to Huntzinger. One is Chittenango, N.Y.-based ESCO Turbine Technologies. The company attributes a 96% reduction in defects (over a two-year period) in one department to TWI. Also, training that used to take two months now takes two weeks.
