2nd module – start
Today we started PIUSS module and we started a case study about running a production line of airplanes.
We cevered roughly D and M stage from DMAIC cycle and that did not seem very difficult - the question is: Is it going to be the same at our work? As far as I get it we did not prepare many documentation of our actions which in the real life is a must. But apart from that we had a line production example and we defined our goals and created teams (although they are too big, we will have both operators, inspectors - so we'll have a good amount of experience).
What we didn't have was a flow chart of the process but this still may be viewed as a part of documentation (though quite important to understand the process!). Actually, I will suggest that tomorrow when we are going to study cause and effects of the process - or we may just go through the assembly together so that everyone understands it.
So our actions seem to be linked and good enough to deliver good performance, but it's still suspiciously easy for me... Anyway, I'm looking forward to tomorrow - especially to design improvement of the plane, I have qiute a few ideas ;]
