Summary:

Changes to work processes to increase productivity are only possible with adequate levels of Essential Skills.

Full Article:

A large manufacturing firm planned to increase productivity by moving to a production line process called Demand Flow Manufacturing (DFM). This requires workers to move from station to station to help out when bottlenecks in production occur in order to keep the line moving.

Supervisors realized that in order for a move to DFM to be successful, a number of workers on the line would need improved Essential Skills, including reading and interpreting documents at each new work station. The manufacturer provided training to enhance these skills, resulting in a successful transition to their new production process.
