Standard Work

6 Definitions

A precise description of each work activity specifying cycle time, takt time, the work sequence of specific tasks, and the minimum inventory of parts on hand needed to conduct the activity.
A precise description of each work activity specifying cycle time, takt time, the work sequence of specific tasks and the minimum inventory of parts on hand needed to conduct the activity.  Deviations from standardized work (variations) are abnormalities whose sources can be quantified and tracked. This information is the basis for continuous improvement activities.
Standard Work is the most efficient combination of man, machine, and material. The three elements of standard work are 1) takt time, 2) work sequence, and 3) standard work-in-process. Performing standard work allows for a clear and visible 'standard' operation. Deviation from standard work indicates an abnormality, which is then an opportunity for improvement.

Similar to Standard Operations.
A precise description of each work activity specifying cycle time, takt time, the work sequence of specific tasks and the minimum inventory of parts on hand needed to conduct the activity.
A precise description of each work activity specifying cycle time, takt time, the work sequence of specific tasks, and the minimum inventory of parts on hand needed to conduct the activity.  Standard Work details the motion of the operator and the process sequence in producing a part. It is the proclamation of the most waste-free production method, through the best combination of people and equipment, the least amount of work in process possible, showing where to check for quality, and where there are safety issues.  It provides a routine for consistency of an operation and a basis for improvement.
