Process Improvement Plan
During the past three weeks I collected data on my weekday routine as it relates to getting ready for work (preparation, exercising, taking care of my dog, etc). Arriving at 7:30 will allow me to have a product day. Statistical Process Control (SPC) can assist with monitoring process behavior as well as “testing a random sample of output from a process to determine whether the process is producing items within a preselected range” (Chase, Jacobs, & Aquilano, 2006).
Therefore, I have analyzed the data to discuss the following factors:
o Control Limits including the Calculations
o The effects of seasonal factors
o Confidence Intervals
o Usefulness of the data points collected
In order for me to get to work on time, I have collected data each day for the past three weeks to categorize the necessary steps that would make my morning routine much easier and less time consuming. My mission is to lessen the time it currently takes me to perform my daily process. After re-evaluating the current process, I found a solution and created a process improvement plan what would be an effective process to get ready and be out the house between 6:15 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. every morning. I created flowchart below describing the daily tasks performed every morning.
