Implementation of model workplaces is an effective way in which to energise implementation of the 20 Keys system and to bring about quick and visible change. Such a model workplace must satisfy four requirements and these requirements are audited by a team of people which must include an ODI consultant, and if achieved, a certificate of achievement is awarded.
To follow is a list of the various requirements:
Requirement 1: Points on the Key 1 check-sheet
The Key 1 check-sheet is used to determine the score on certification day.
Requirement 2: Model desks, worktables and machines
Model desks, worktables and machines have to comply to certain requirements.
Requirement 3: Single-minute information retrieval or Single-minutes changeovers
The third requirement for model workplaces is about achieving single minute (less than one minute) information retrieval or single-minutes changeovers (less than 10 minutes).
Requirement 4: Model stores
The principles of setting up model workplace stores are based on visual management.
