Did You Know?
TWI (Training Within Industry) originated in the 1940s as a US government training initiative to rapidly increase production of war materials. As part of the rebuilding of post-war Japan, it was adopted by nearly all large Japanese manufacturers, and formed the basis of what became Lean manufacturing. It is used to this day, and was re-introduced to the US in the early 2000s.
