The Complete TWI Programs: JI, JM, JR, JS & PS Training


The Training Within Industry (TWI) programs were designed by some of the best training and management experts in the United States and were rigorously field-tested before general release. When the TWI programs were introduced to Japan in the early 1950s, many Japanese companies wholeheartedly adopted them and their fundamental message. Toyota was one of those companies.


TWI programs are an integral part of Lean and aim to deliver a better-skilled workforce, improved labor and management relations, productivity improvements and a focus on continuous improvement.


This is a complete TWI training package comprising the three original programs called Job Instruction (JI), Job Methods (JM) and Job Relations (JR), and the two "plus" programs called Job Safety (JS) and Problem Solving (PS).


Altogether, these three-plus-two TWI programs address the processes of instructing people on the best way to perform jobs, problem solving and continuous improvement, improved communication and leadership skills and increased workplace safety. 


  • Job Instruction Training (JI): Train supervisors in how to instruct a person to perform a job correctly and safely; and to be productive as quickly as possible, while creating less scrap, rework, and damage to tools and equipment.


  • Job Relations Training (JR): Train supervisors in how to solve personnel problems using an analytical, non-emotional method combined with some basic foundations of human relations.


  • Job Methods Training (JM): Train supervisors in how to improve the way jobs are performed in order to consistently produce greater quantities of quality products in less time using available manpower, machines and materials. 


  • Job Safety Training (JS): The JS program creates a simple and logical framework by which supervisors can prevent accidents from happening by learning how to analyze the causes of accidents and eliminating them before they happen. 


  • Problem Solving Training (PS): Train supervisors in how to solve problems in order to achieve the desired results. The PS program integrates and elevates the three original TWI skills (JI, JM and JR) into a problem-solving focus. 


This TWI PPT training package is specially tailored for your organization's Internal TWI or On-The-Job Trainer. The training slides can be used to conduct training in the classroom, with practice demonstrations by participants done either in the classroom and/or shopfloor as appropriate. The job aids such as Job Breakdown Sheet, Training Timetable, JBS for Work Analysis, etc. can be put to immediate use or customized. 


You may deliver each TWI program/module separately, spread them over 2-hourly sessions, or adapt them to suit your operational requirements.
