Standard Pig

The Minnesota state government has a great page of Lean resources, including Standard Pig! This fun exercise is a great way to illustrate the value of Standard Work. Each participant is given a grid and written instructions, or the instructions can be read out to the group. The goal is for everyone to come up with the same drawing at the end based on the instructions. And it's a pig!!


The site is a little slim on the facilitator details for this game, and since I haven't participated in this exercise myself, I imagine that based on the instructions, not everyone will get it exactly right. I can only assume that discussion should follow about how to improve the standard work. Looks like the perfect addition to a small kaizen event.

The site is full of lean resources... check out the following resource page:
http://mn.gov/admin/lean/resources/ci-tools/index.jsp

Standard Pig can be found using these direct links:

This game has been added to the huge list of free Lean games in the sidebar.

  6. Looks like the links are broken again. This time they changed the whole website, so some of the resources are missing. I have updated the links to point to the new page, as well as added a few different links to the Standard Pig game..
