Sample text

He clearly knew that there was no better way to capture people’s interest and prepare them for learning than an anodyne question. Quite unsurprisingly, the one he chose looked trivial. “Before we start working on the simulation, could you guess the percentage of improvement we would be able to achieve by applying ‘black book sharing’ to our simulation? ” The room stayed silent for a few seconds. Then, Thomas reacted: “Well, I really have no idea; however, based on my experience running plants, I think getting a 10% improvement through any project is not so bad.

Another thing we need to be focusing on to sustain waste reduction is Muri. The biggest impact of Muri is when the operator is overburdened. Therefore, we will be looking to improve work conditions, which are mostly ergonomics, postures, and unsafe behaviors. 4]. * Although the curve is a rough representation or the evolution of worker performance as a function of the work conditions, it is largely supported by several research works, including the ones by H. Monod. Also, data collected by Alain Patchong, the author, and his colleagues have shown that there is a nearly linear correlation between an operator performance and his or her work conditions.

The best way to make an estimate is not to sit in your office and crunch questionable numbers. As always, and whenever it is possible, you will need to go to the shop floor and experiment or, more precisely, perform a mock-up. Use whatever you can find around you: cardboard, people—in a word, all assets available. Use them to emulate the real situation. Based on this mock-up, you will be able to 38 • Implementing Standardized Work achieve your best estimate. In general, there is rarely a better estimate.
