  • 100% reduced training time by more than 25%
  • 55% reduced scrap by at least 25%

During the prosperity of post-war America, the TWI program was abandoned and it soon became a faded memory. TWI is experiencing a rebirth throughout industry. Lean enterprises are increasingly turning to TWI as a means to sustain improvements and achieve standard work. TWI has been successfully applied in hundreds of companies worldwide.
