Training and Implementation of the GSD Standard is the most important element of the Enterprise solution.
A successful implementation will ensure your team has the ability to use GSD data accurately, consistently and effectively. We focus on providing the correct balance of theory and practical training, delivered via our deeply experienced and professional Training Consultants, to ensure robust adoption of GSD inside your organization, and achievement of the maximum return on investment.
GSD Practitioner Training & Accreditation
The GSD Practitioner training program includes theoretical and practical implementation of the system and is essential for all users of GSD Enterprise.
This is a formal on-site course for a maximum of ten people, including both a theory and practical examination, and a data and knowledge audit at the end of the course. Attendees must successfully complete all sections to become certified as a registered and Licensed “GSD Practitioner”, which is an internationally recognised qualification.
The Training is conducted in three separate phases:
1 week training of the GSD codes. Students take Theory and Practical exams as part of the training.
1 week training on how to use the GSD Enterprise Software and set up the local production environment in the database.
Core Style Analysis:
1 week training on the practical application of GSD in the production line to measure existing operation methods. One or more styles are analysed by the GSD team, forming the foundation of the new GSD Database.
This analysis will demonstrate how the new GSD numbers can improve Efficiency in Planning, Line Balancing and in workable incentive schemes
Once a core style has been analysed the GSD team use the Enterprise method analysis tools to optimise motions and reduce waste. A typical result of this phase is to reduce the Standard Time of the style and improve Productivity by 5-10%
Data Audit and Follow Up:
Once the newly trained Practitioners have been using the solution for 2-3 months, we are back on site to audit the work created by the team to ensure the solution is being implemented correctly. Advanced training is also undertaken during this phase.
After a 4-6 months we are back on site for a third time to support the newly trained GSD team, giving them an opportunity to highlight any issues they may have. At this time we also audit the team, the data and the factory to identify any weaknesses and to put in place corrective actions as necessary.
Once qualified, the GSD Practitioners then use Enterprise as a Method Improvement tool to investigate the detail of the analysis to identify opportunities for improvement. These improvements, once approved, are saved as new updated versions of the analysis.
