In applications of standardized work where the work is performed in sequential steps at different physical locations as the sequence progresses, the geographic positioning of the various steps required can have a significant impact on the worker. If it is necessary that the worker move on to the next step in the process, then it is imperative that we keep the waste of walking to a minimum. So, the first thing that we realize is that the layout of the process steps is very important, especially in applications where the worker repeats the cycle multiple times per work period.
