Hired as a quality inspector. Your basic task is to remove waste. You have the following info
Demand monthly = 100 tons
Price = 1 ton = Rs100,000
Warehouse cost = Rs500/day
Bags leakage = 10tons/month
Required bag weight = 10kg
Fluctuation in bag weight = +/- 4kgs
Desired time packaging to shipping = 5hrs
Actual time = 10hrs
First product is stored in warehouse and loaded in truck this increases time by 5hrs
People have to walk alongside machinery refer to image for movement flow
Some employees told you they can do much more for the organization given a chance

Arslan — How do you think the problem should be solved? What have you tried? Where are you running into a problem? You’re far more likely to receive helpful responses if you show that you’ve put forth a good-faith effort to solve your problem before asking for assistance. The iSixSigma audience can be exceptionally helpful, but they are not here to do your work for you.0July 24, 2017 at 4:10 am #201664
