Job Instruction (JI)
Quickly training employees to do a job correctly, safely, and conscientiously.
Job Instruction is designed to develop basic stability of your processes (standard work). This program teaches the method to instruct an operator how to perform a job correctly, safely and conscientiously. As is frequently the case, most processes are performed by various workers using different methods. Job Instruction requires you identify the “one best way”, teach the process to this one way, and thereby creates a standard method. The basis of stability is generated by doing the same thing the same way across operators and shifts. So by utilizing Job Instruction you gain the benefits of consistent training and also develop a stable process to apply continuous improvement upon. This lays a solid foundation for any continuous improvement program and is especially beneficial when you apply the third TWI program, Job Methods.
Benefits experienced when practicing Job Instruction are reduced training time, less scrap and rework, fewer accidents, and increased job satisfaction.
