Wittur Italy in Colorno has started a project in cooperation with the Kaizen Institute of Bologna, Italy, aimed at better structured and more effective assembly-line operator training.
The project was a training-within-industry workshop, a method born in the U.S. during World War II to improve production in companies by adding new people to production lines. The aim was to train them in the shortest time possible to do things they had never done before.
