One point lessons can be used to communicate a change in a process, a new tool, a change in machinery, or a lean 5s program to be implemented in a work area.
What are the Different Types of One Point Lessons?
One point lessons generally fall into one of four types of training lessons – Basic Knowledge, Safety, Trouble, and Improvement. In each of these scenarios, one point lessons are great training tools that communicate standards, improvements, and troubleshooting.
1. Basic Knowledge
Basic knowledge one point lessons are used to fill a knowledge gap, ensuring that workers have the skills and knowledge needed to perform their job effectively and efficiently. For example, how to perform a changeover, lubricate, or clean an area.
This type of one point lesson bridges the gap between classroom training and on-the-job training, and is increasingly being used to replace traditional training methods.
Safety-based one point lessons focus on ensuring workers know and understand current safety procedures and have the knowledge they need to perform their jobs safely and learn any new safety procedures.
This type of one point lesson uses real-world scenarios to reinforce a point through visual instruction to help prevent factory floor problems. Examples may include breakdowns, defects, or issues with machinery, outlining how to identify and resolve issues. These types of one point lessons are most effective when used immediately after the problem occurs.
Improvement one point lessons are used to demonstrate new concepts and results that have been driven from continuous improvement projects or kaizen study.
Example of a One Point Lesson
How to Create One Point Lessons with Augmentir
One point lessons should be created in digital format and managed through a central content management system. Modern digital work instruction software, often times included as part of a complete connected worker platform, provides a system for creating, managing, and distributing digital versions of one point lessons. These systems can also track whether employees completed one-point lessons. Advanced connected worker platforms that utilize artificial intelligence (AI) can also be configured to autonomously deliver one point lessons to workers based on proficiency, job recency, or as part of a more comprehensive manufacturing workflow.
Augmentir includes templates for commonly used procedures and the following interactive components for creating digital work instructions:
Common Use Cases
One point lessons that are created as digital work instructions can provide a continuous training tool for operators, quality engineers, and maintenance staff, and can be used across a variety of use cases.
Deliver training that meets the needs of your workforce
Effective use of digital one point lessons can help drive optimization across your workforce. Today, with the ability to deliver training at the moment of need, onboarding can focus on everything a worker will probably do, significantly reducing onboarding time.
