6. Create visual Set up Standards and Methods of Manufacture that instruct the operator how to install and set plant, equipment and tooling provided; and how to carry out the operations necessary to realise the defect free value-added assembly that your modifications or improvements intended.

7. Deliver practical training and instruction to Production Team Leaders and Key Operators to develop and validate their capability to train Operators in accordance with the Set up Standards and Methods of Manufacture you have created.
