ENGR 131 A15: Kimberly-Clark Restroom Design Project Fall 2017 INDIVIDUAL Problem Scoping/Needfinding Decreasing the waste of unused products means to stop oversupplying products such as toilet paper, hand tissues, etc to the customer. This way a product that is not used as frequently is not supplied more than it is needed. I would measure this by comparing the amount of the product is currently being used to how much of the product is being used after my solution is implemented. b. What does “human touch-time” mean in this context? Define human-touch time Write how you would measure it. Human-touch time means the amount of time the maintenance staff is cleaning the restroom. I would measure this by setting up a schedule that shows times of the day the bathroom is cleaned. c. For this project, what is "restroom cleanliness"? Define restroom cleanliness Write how you would measure it. Cleanliness for this project is the look and feel of a restroom. A restroom is clean if it does not have waste products all over the place whether that be trash or some other substances. A restroom is also clean if the utilities are not dirty and the customer’s experiences is not impeded by the look and feel of the utilities. I would measure this by taking surveys of what the bathroom looks like at certain intervals. Then I would compare this to the pictures taken after my solution is implemented.

    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.
