History of the TWI Job Methods Pocket Card

In the early 1940's, the U.S. government formed a Bureau of Training War Manpower Commission
to help industry quickly ramp up for World War II.

One of their 3 "J Programs" was the Job Methods program — which served as one of the foundations upon which Toyota eventually built the kaizen teachings that have now grown into the legendary Toyota Production System.

Of the 3 "J Programs", Job Methods has evolved the most since the 1940's. The Systems2win TWI Job Methods Pocket Card template gives you a much better start, by summarizing modern lean teachings that go far beyond where TWI left off in the 1940's.
