Descrizione prodotto


"TWI was developed in the United States to accelerate training for World War II. It is basic industrial engineering with a twist: supervisors are teachers who work cooperatively with workers on the shop floor to teach them the job. While TWI largely disappeared from the American landscape shortly after WWII it was brought over to Japan where Toyota made this the foundation of its standardized work. Toyota evolved TWI to fit the unique philosophy of the Toyota Production System. This book brings TWI back to light outside Toyota and illustrates its contemporary power through detailed case studies. As the authors correctly note the disciplined training of workers by supervisors (group leaders) is a missing link in most implementation of lean production."
―Professor Jeffrey Liker, University of Michigan, Shingo Prize-Winning Author of The Toyota Way

"In the face of intense global change, first line supervisors, in order to objectively take charge of their own circumstances, must develop fundamental supervisory skills. Based on a respect for humanity and the scientific approach, TWI represents fundamental and rational supervisory skills that were widely adopted by Japanese industry and became the driving force behind its industrial development. Coming through the confusion that followed the collapse of Japan's economic bubble, the value and importance of TWI is again being recognized and it is quickly being reestablished throughout Japan. Furthermore, we are seeing genuine development of the program in Japanese industries operating throughout Asia.The Japan Industrial Training Association has been the primary promoter of TWI in Japan since 1950. After 60 years, we have great hopes that, with the earnest reevaluation of TWI in the U.S.A. where it was developed, we might see a worldwide trend toward TWI training. The publication of this book is a major step in that direction."
―Kazuhiko Watanabe, Managing Director, Japan Industrial Training Association (JITA)

"If companies would spend half the time on developing these essential skills in the supervisor ranks that they spend on conducting Value Stream Mapping or Kaizen Workshops today, I am convinced that they would not only achieve more impressive results but the results would stick better as well."
―Art Smalley, Shingo Prize-Winning Author, President, Art of Lean, Inc., and Former employee of the Toyota Motor Corp., Japan

"Patrick Graupp and Bob Wrona teach us how to "learn by doing" the TWI methods that are necessary if a business leader desires to make the leap to a higher level of operational performance."
―Jim Huntzinger, TWI Trainer, Lean Accounting Summit and Highland Path

"Patrick Graupp has a long career teaching and leading the TWI program. Immediately upon arriving in Japan in 1980 he took up the promotion of TWI and helped introduce it to Sanyo plants throughout the world. After returning to the U.S., he exhaustively promoted TWI there and became a rare and exceptional instructor. He has a thorough understanding of the TWI courses and a rich experience teaching them which makes him the best person today to reintroduce TWI to the U.S.A."
―Kazuhiko Shibuya, TWI

5.0 su 5 stelle Essential: USE IT 30 gennaio 2010
Di Daniel O. Strongin - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Once again, work done in the US is used world wide to improve and be competetive, but is forgotten in the US in the sad march to Greed is Good and planned obsolescence. The TWI documents mean Training within Industry, a program set up by the Defense Department during WWII to teach the untrained how to produce ships, vehicles and weapons for the war. the original docs are in the public domain, but type-written and with references to World War II and the War effort, they need work. Guess What? This book updates that work and offers anyone really interested in training their workers to actually improve, rather than just talk about, will see their profit improve, their sales go up way beyond the cost of actually training. Can be taken as a script and the payoff is a gift that keeps on giving. I use it in my consulting and am afraid to tell you how much more effective companies become and how that effects their bottom line because you'll think I am fibbing.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very Good Orientation Book for TWI 26 luglio 2010
Di I. Portscheller - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If you've been interested in learning about TWI, but haven't yet had opportunity to take an instructor-led class, then you might want to consider this book. Of course, nothing substitutes for practicing the skills under the guidance of an instructor/facilitator, but this book is an easy, quick read that gets right to the important stuff and avoids long-winded ramblings on theory. What is more, the content uses simple language and is well-organized. Most supervisors could read this on their own, but nuiances would be missed without actively practicing the 'workshop' activities outlined in the book. I plan to have supervisors read a section at a time, do the workshops activities, discuss the lesson's merits, and then apply the concepts under my guidance before moving to the next section.

If you train people in manufacturing or other process oriented areas you should have this book and read it. Even if you're not doing Lean or Six Sigma or anything else. If you manage or train people, you should read this book. It's perfect and thorough and straight forward.

The TWI Workbook: Essential Skills for Supervisors provides a detailed, hands-on description of TWI training. It shows the step by step process in great detail and can be used as a training supplement or refresher. It emphasizes the importance of adhering to the detailed training regimen established over 50 years ago. I stongly recommend it to anyone interested in the details.
