TWI Program: 

Job Methods (JM) Training


The TWI Job Methods (JM) program teaches supervisors how to improve methods for producing greater quantities of quality products in less time by effectively using available workforce, machines and materials.  Participants are taught how to break down jobs into their constituent operations. Every detail is questioned in a systematic manner to generate ideas for improvement. New methods are developed by eliminating, combining, rearranging, and simplifying steps in the process. Job Methods yields significant benefits including reduced cost through productivity gains, increased throughput, and reduced work in process.


NOTE:  Our TWI training materials are closely aligned to the original TWI training manuals developed by the TWI Service.
