Training Within Industry (TWI) was created by the U.S. government to address the issue of workers will fight World War II. At that time, most factory workers were men, and as these men went to war, they were taking with them the knowledge of how to do their job. The government U.S. fears in particular that many of the industries that were required to supply the war effort would suffer.

Training Within Industry was built about five things that every supervisor must be effective: knowledge of the work, knowledge, responsibility, ability to instruct, skills improvement of methods and driving skills. To cover these, for programs were created: Job Instruction (JI), Job Methods (JM) and Job Relations (JR).

Training Job training taught supervisors and experienced workers to train new or inexperienced workers to shorten the learning curve. The work to be done were broken down into discrete steps with the procedures and key points for the job. Job training methods was aimed at workers teaching how to make your work more efficient and constantly improving how things were done. Finally, the Labour Relations supervisors trained how to deal with workers fairly and effectively.

After the war, TWI was extended to Japan where Toyota is widely used and had a direct impact on their development of standard work and kaizen. Ironically, TWI fell into disuse in the United States once the soldiers returned to the factory and experienced a number for decades without significant external competition. Many of the concepts of immersion, however, are gaining resurgence with the spread of Lean in USA.
