TWI Job Instruction (JI)
QUICKLY TRAIN EMPLOYEES TO DO A JOB CORRECTLY, SAFELY AND CONSCIENTIOUSLY
The Job Instruction (JI) training aims to help manufacturing companies develop a well-trained workforce characterized by less scrap, rework, and rejects; fewer accidents; and less tool and equipment damage.

Training employees and developing a flexible workforce requires standardized work. A supervisor who thoroughly understands a job may need to gain the appropriate skills to teach other employees successfully.
Job Instructions (JI) trains supervisors on how to become effective teachers. Program attendees learn how to break down a job and provide instruction for individual tasks in a structured fashion to facilitate process stability.
MAINTAIN A WELL-TRAINED WORKFORCE
Developing systematic training skills helps supervisors maintain a well-trained workforce, resulting in less scrap and rework, fewer accidents, and less tool and equipment damage. If an employee doesn't follow the correct procedure, training (or lack of it) is likely the cause. In JI, supervisors learn how to effectively break down a job for instruction.
- The method emphasizes:
- Preparing the employee to learn
- Giving a proper demonstration
- Identifying and demonstrating the critical steps and key points of the job
- Observing the employee performing trial runs
- Tapering off coaching while continuing to follow up
- Training time, rework, and operator error (PPM)
DRIVE IMPORTANT METRICS
JI has a high impact on standard work and training time. Implementation of this program will drive several metrics, including time to proficiency and increased quality. Ensuring your employees use the best-known process will also help minimize rework.
- JI equips staff to deal with a range of training and procedural issues effectively, resulting in:
- Reduced training time
- Increased production quantity and improved quality
- Fewer accidents
- Increased job satisfaction and moraleLess scrap and rework
- Increased profits
- Less equipment and tool damage
- Standardized workImproved productivity and capacity metrics
Often, operator errors are the root cause of quality issues. Training to standard work will allow you to drill beyond typical problems to address process shortcomings, further reduce PPM defects, and simultaneously decrease rework. You can achieve sustainability by standardizing and training all operators using the best method.
