Purpose and Emphasis of Each Session
|1||Make sure that it is clear that supervisors are responsible for manufacturing good quality products at the required cost. |
Introduce the 4-step method to get workers to quickly remember how to do each job correctly, safely and conscientiously.
|Supervisors are responsible for training the workers in their own departments.|
Telling alone or showing alone is not a good instruction method. There is a sure and dependable method that works every time if it is applied.
|2||Through demonstration of a job by a participant and its observation by others, emphasise that ‘Job Instruction Breakdowns’ are always needed as a basis for good instruction. |
Explain how to make a breakdown and have the participants practice it.
|Job Instruction Breakdowns are effective for dividing the job into steps and emphasizing the key points. Supervisors must prepare tools and materials and organise the work site when instructing.|
|3||Explain and illustrate how to make a training timetable. |
Two participants do their practice demonstration instruction. All compare their methods to the one on the card; all participants practice how to apply the 4-step method and the ‘How to Get Ready’ points.
|The basis of good instruction is to make a training timetable and Job Instruction Breakdowns. |
When having the learner try out the job, we need to make sure that he/she has completely learned it.
|4||Have trainees examine their department’s training timetable. |
Four participants do their practice demonstration instruction and practice the 4-step method and the ‘How to Get Ready’ points.
Emphasise special instruction methods: time consuming operations (complex work), a noisy worksite, or how to convey a point of feel or knack.
|Through the training timetable, we can systematically make a training plan. |
High calibre instruction is always required in order to do a precision job or to work under difficult conditions.
|5||Three participants do their practice demonstration instruction and practice the 4-step method and the ‘How to Get Ready’ points. |
Emphasise that high production is the fruit of good instruction.
|Skill in instructing is one of the most important tools supervisors must have. |
Supervisors also have to make constant efforts to maintain a good working environment in which workers can easily do their jobs with confidence.
This kind of skill is useful for supervisors to prevent production problems from arising from ‘don’t know/can’t do’ and to solve them if they do arise
