Brainstorming takes a lot of energy. It�s �work,� but it�s also fun. It�s what we�ve held ourselves back from doing for the last couple of days.
We�ve prepared ourselves by learning about Waste and making our observations. (Point to Waste Observations.)
We�ve done our Lead Time Analysis and made further discoveries of where the waste exists within the process and determined what is non-value added from the customer�s perspective. (Point to Lead Time charts.)
We did our Standardized Operations studies and looked at the process from the employee�s point of view. (Point to Standardized Operations charts.)
We need to move beyond our natural paradigms and comfort zones and put on our thick skins. We�re going to throw out any and all ideas and capture them on paper and line the walls with solutions for improvement.
We won�t take time to analyze yet. We�ll do that later. Right now we just want to toss out any solutions that come to mind.
