- 2 -Process Improvement Plan During the first week of class we were asked to create flowcharts to show a process which we felt needed improvement. Over the past five weeks data was collected for the purpose of monitoring and reviewing the results of my morning preparations. I created a flow chart based on my daily routine in m preparations for work. The purpose of the flowchart was to determine a more effective way to utilize my time in the morning, and to identify bottlenecks in the process. The statistical process control for my morning routine process will be used to ensure that my process will operate effectively with as minimal waste as possible. This document will outline the control limits of my morning routine, the effects of any seasonal factors and the confidence intervals involved. The total operating time for my morning process is 60 minutes. This takes me from the time my alarm sounds to the time I walk out of the door. In order for my routine to be more effective, the total time needs to be reduced by 20 minutes, for a total of 40 minutes. The operating time of 40 minutes is the new control limit, which is also the boundary of the process. Delays in my morning routine such as pressing the snooze button, ensuring my clothes are clean and ironed, and making sure my lunch is prepared the night before. If any of the aforementioned steps are not taken, the delay can be critical, and I will be off schedule. My morning routine will be more effective by adding capacity. When a process such as my morning routine is operating at capacity, the only way to take on more work without increasing the waiting tome is to as more capacity. Adding capacity would decrease my preparation time with my morning routine, even if it takes prior night
