Standardized Work is one of the most powerful but least understood Lean tools.

Standardized Work consists of five basic elements:

  1. Work rate based on customer demand;
  2. The precise work sequence for workers to perform work tasks;
  3. Point of Use Design of the workplace:
  4. Standardized Work In Process required to keep the process operating smoothly;
  5. The relationship between worker, equipment, tools, and software.
