    if not eliminated. The essential thing in going lean is to eliminate the waste. “Stripped to its roots, lean focuses on decreasing waste, increasing value to the customer and a process of continuous improvement.” (Dalto, 2015) There are 8 wastes categories recognized when going lean, they are Unutilized People, inventory, motion, waiting, transporting, defects, overproduction and over processing (Sarkar, 2009). The goal for the Receiving section is to eliminate Motion, which is unnecessary walking; waiting, which is wasted time waiting for the next step in the process; Transportation, the unnecessary movement of items and Defects, efforts caused by rework and incorrect information. In introducing the receiving section to the TMO career field, value must be identified, by asking questions in regards to customers’ needs. The next is to create a value stream mapping which is “Value stream mapping is a visual means to depict and improve the flow of manufacturing and production process, as well as the information that controls the flow of materials through the process. It is the preferred methodology for identifying the inherent waste and losses within an operation.” (Mobley, 2013). This will allow us to actively document and analyze how value changes and flows as the section grows. Very importantly is this principle which is to stream line/ smooth the flow by starting with the establishing facility/cellular layout with consolidated task assignment and equipment as it relates to…

  • Spring Creek Chemistry Lab Report

    instruments were calibrated prior to taking measurements, and the standard values were checked immediately before collecting data. Between each submergence of the instruments in the creek, they were rinsed with distilled water and wiped down with a Kimwipe, which was repeated before and after each measurement was taken. To standardize the pH measurement, the pH probe was submerged in the 4.01 ± 0.01 or in the 7.01 ± 0.01 buffer solution, and the reading was then compared to the true pH of the…

When looking at photographs of the Yellow River, the waterway is a brownish-red tint, and looks like humans tossed dead carcasses…
