ENGR 131 A15: Kimberly-Clark Restroom Design Project Fall 2017 INDIVIDUAL Problem Scoping/Needfinding Description of Idea Pros Cons Idea 1 Supply less product Would reduce waste of unused product Possibility of running out of toilet paper while someone is using the bathroom Idea 2 Adjust the times maintenance people clean the bathroom Would allow for products to be swapped in and out at the best possible time which would eventually limit waste This would be a change to the current schedule of the maintenance staf which would mean there would be a period where they would have to get used to the new schedule Idea 3 Encourage customers to limit the products they are wasting, this could be done by putting up signs May help to limit waste of unused products Most likely customers will ignore the signs and continue with their behavior Generate at least 3 ideas that would decrease human touch-time.

ENGR 131 A15: Kimberly-Clark Restroom Design Project Fall 2017 INDIVIDUAL Problem Scoping/Needfinding Idea 1 Decrease the waste in the bathrooms The process of cleaning the bathroom would not take that long Cleaning staf would clean the times when it may not be very efficient to clean the bathroom Idea 2 Change the maintenance schedule Cleaning staf would clean at times where it is more efficient to limit waste There may still be a lot of waste when taking into consideration the customers behavior is not changed Idea 3 Replace certain products that are most popular instead of cleaning the whole bathroom Will not require the staf to clean the whole bathroom only replacing products that are most frequently used This system may lead to neglect of other products which could in turn create a shortage of other necessary products Page 5 of 5

    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.
