ERPglossary.com definition of:

standard work

In a lean supply chain or lean manufacturing context, the definition of the standard steps or baseline practices to complete a process. A primary goal is to reduce variation, and provide a template for successful execution to those involved in the process. Standard work practices often form the basis for new hire orientation training programs, and help enable performance measurement.

While often used on the manufacturing floor, standard work practices can also be applied to front-office scenarios such as workplace safety or conference room scheduling and cleanup.
