    Having 15 + years experience, I am able to detail what needs to be addressed in order to make the aspects of the process efficient, allowing room for more capacity. I can have these items budgeted and executed in 1- 2 months, of course depending on the complexity and quantity.
    So why drag out these tasks over 6 months using complex software tools and a Dog and Pony slap down?

    I’m sure there’s a point to be made in there somewhere, but not quite seeing it…

    You wouldn’t happen to know Troy and Scott, would you?

    No I don’t know Troy or Scott but if they have the same trouble I would like to hear from them and discuss simplicity.

    Experience and “go do” reaps the rewards in one quarter the time, oh bright one.

    I’m sure that works for the low hanging fruit and obvious stuff. Except I would challenge one point – how do you know you’re making an improvement, and not making anything worse? And, by what method do you “go do”? What about the persistent problems, that have survived a few rounds of “go do” that aren’t obvious, or have to do with something you haven’t ever experienced before? What then? I totally agree that go do has a place – I would always recommend that over doing a LSS project if it is the right thing to do.The problem I’ve seen with that time and again is that the “Go do” reflects the biases and limits of the person’s experience, and frequently is a gut call, not based on much in the way of facts or data. And there’s little consideration paid to how you bake it back into the standard work, or how you prove that your “go do” did what it was meant to do.YMMV…

    If you are not using a structured problem-solving methodology or data to drive your decisions, what is taking you so long? You should be able to execute those types of decisions in hours or days, not two months.

    Adam,
    You go boy! We are proud of you. You just stand right up and show them what a man you are. We are impressed.
    As long as you keep doing what you are doing some Black Belt will have a job cleaning up after you. Where do you think all these Black Belt projects come from. They are fixing process that guys like you created.
    You go boy! Yeah! 2010 is going to be a good year.

    Trouble? What trouble do you have? You should be in high demand
    and employed by only world class manufacturers.Of course you just might be one of those guys running crummy
    processes and doesn’t know, and don’t want to know, the difference.Adam, go beat your chest where someone might be impressed.
    Blowhards drop by here a lot.
