CITY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT In snow-belt regions, rapid weather changes at certain times of the year cause potholes to form in the roads. The potholes make driving unpleasant and can cause damage to vehicles. It was early in the winter and complaints from city residents about potholes were increasing. The mayor asked the administrator of the highway department to deal with the problem. The administrator believed that the road crews assigned to fill potholes were not working fast enough. He decided to initiate a goal-setting program to improve the performance of the road crews. After conducting some time studies to determine how long it would take to fill potholes, the administrator decided to set a standard, but the administrator estimated that productivity needed to improve by 20% to eliminate unfilled potholes. The same standard was used for all of the crews, without regard to where they were assigned to work. Road crews were instructed to record the location of each pothole they filled on a worksheet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
