Standardizing is about reaching an agreement that everyone involved will follow on the best currently known way of doing something. Where ways of working are standardized, the same task will always be performed in exactly the same way, regardless of who carries out the task. This has a huge impact not only on quality, but also on efficiency.
Standardizing ways of working is not as easy as it sounds. Part Development can contribute by providing an understanding of why standardization is important and how it can be done. This essentially involves teaching and practical training of leaders and employees.
