Preferred Method/Best Practices

Is your operation lean? Do your supervisors have a tool or a job aide they can use to get the best performance from your associates?

If you answered no to either of these questions you probably have not developed or documented your operations' Preferred Methods.

What is a Preferred Method?

  • A 10 to 20 step document that focuses on the best way to perform a task under normal operating conditions
  • It is not always the easiest or fastest way!
  • It is required when developing pre-determined time standards
  • It should take into consideration quality and safety
