GSD Theoretical Training
The training was led by Riza Anderson, an experienced member of our team of Training and Productivity Consultants. Riza guided the participants methodically through the theoretical element of the training and explained the applications of the GSD Predetermined Time Standard (PTS) system.
Riza also delivered a comprehensive evaluation of the GSD process, ensuring the students gained a well-defined understanding of the GSD motion codes. This initial classroom element of the training included formal practical exercises, in which full involvement of all of the group was encouraged to further embedded the awareness of the GSD process.
GSD Practical Application to help assess the true cost of manufacturing
The next stage for the students took place within the production lines of their own manufacturing units and had the opportunity to put their learning into practice, observing, taking notes and videos of many of the company’s core styles.
These videos were later reviewed, and through the use of the GSD methodology, the student started to create and review macro, operation, features and style analyses. They also started to recognise waste in their operation and began the process of eliminating that waste.
We are delighted to make it known all of the participants who attended this GSD Training Course passed the GSD Theory and Practical Examinations and therefore moved onto the Software Training element of the process. This involve practicing with the software to gain further understanding in preparation of their GSD licensing exam in December.
