ICT-TOOLS SUPPORT TOYOTA WAY PRINCIPLE #6
Paper i proceeding, 2014
This paper pursues to discuss how the implementation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)-tools could support standardized work (principle #6). This will be done through a theoretical discussion, and furthermore a case study will show a practical example i.e, a web application as an ICT-tool solution to support standardized tasks. The web application is intended to; help the standardization of assembly instructions, help learn novice and experienced operators, and increase the knowledge sharing. The case study has no documented instructions, as a consequence, there is a high risk that all this knowledge can be lost in the future.
