six sigma exercise——making model planes

yesterday we did a great exercise lecture from Graeme to make model planes within time required.

although team2 is faster than us,i think we still did an excellent job.

after trial, we redesigned our layout to improve the process, operation process is well splitted,and only 4 operators and 1 supplier,labour cost saving. finally,8 out of 11 planes was deliveried whin the target time. around 2 sigma we reached.

but one important thing comes to my mind is listening.

During our discussion, some members have a lot of ideas, it is good,but I think we need to listen to others idea not only think about yourselves. Team means cooperation, we spent too much time on theory thinking, chatting rather than doing practice.

although Define is important, but theory never make sense without exercise. If each of us can listen to each other, lot of ideas can be gathered, and then discuss which is best, we can try it, thats criteria base ,not interput others make them to agree with your own ideas. This problem reduce our efficiency and even the passion of the group.

I think from the other side of view, leadership is required. running a team based operation without a leader is terrible!
