Statistical Control The American Society of Quality resources was used to create control chart for the individuals. A control chart is used to graph how a process changes over time. The Upper Control Limit (UCL) is the maximum or longest amount of time to complete the fulfillment process and the Lower Control Limit (LCL) is the minimum or shortest amount of time. In the graph below, the control limits are represented by a solid red line. Our process is statistical control because all the data points are within UCL and LCL lines. There are some common variants that are inherent to the process, such as incorrect orders, breakdowns of equipment, not having enough supplies on hand, etc. Utilizing a control chart can be a benchmark for the implementation of a new process at the new location.
Analyzing the Cause and Effect of Process Variances When analyzing the source of variance in the espresso beverage preparation, there are multiple causes. To categorize the factors in a cause and effect analysis, the 6M method was applied. The 6M stands for manpower, machinery, materials, methods, measurement and management. Manpower illustrates the personnel’s proficiency and experience. Machinery checks for stability and functionality along with the age and condition of equipment. We need to think about the materials’ components and availability. The methodology affects the time to prepare the beverages. Under method, we look for precision and implementation of workflow. Factors to be considered for measurement are the method used to measure and the gauge used to measure. Managers are important in planning, setting objectives, motivating and managing staff, and delegating assets. By analyzing the 6Ms, we can reduce the effect they have on beverage preparation times at the new location. Management and Manpower Management and manpower are related to each other and, oftentimes, manpower is the result of management’s actions. At Wild Dog Coffee, our customers are our lifeblood. Long wait times or inconsistent service has the potential to lead to loss in customers. Our baristas are the face of Wild Dog and provide a valuable service. If they do not have adequate training or effective leadership, customers could be driven away to our competitors. Managers need the skills to motivate and run the internal operations effectively. Inadequate scheduling or not responding to changes could create a situation where baristas are multitasking or not having supplies on hand. Method Some of the reasons for increased times are our lack of creative methods to reduce wait times. Not having a standardized procedure for making espresso leads to some baristas being more efficient than others, which can be seen with the variance in times. Procedures for maintaining a well-stocked work area are needed to create a better environment for the baristas. Ensuring everyone knows when to start and stop the timer will also decrease time inconsistencies.
