In a highly competitive world, a movement towards standardized work has benefits for manufacturing and end users alike. It provides a basis for continuous improvement, offers predictability and structure...but does it also lead to micromanaging and a stifling of creativity? Is there an alternative solution? Join us as we discuss areas where standardization is most effective.
