This assignment asks you to implement Lean Six Sigma tools in your home (or apartment) or your office, in daily life. Some ideas would be 5S in the laundry room, a Kanban system for your pantry to know when to shop for certain foods, a shadow board for the silverware drawer, color coded storage boxes (red and green for Christmas items), a tennis ball in the garage to poke-yoke the parking position, etc.
Students will submit 3 pages write up of the project (s) (Times NR, font 12, single space) including pictures before and after your implementation. If it is a very small project, you need to have 3 projects in this assignment. Your writing should include the follows:
Project (s) name – for example pantry makeover, Poka Yoke and parking position, 5S in laundry room, organizing tools with shadow board.
Brief definition and some details of your selected LSS tools
Challenges that were experienced and how you overcame them. How dramatic was the before and after? Include data on the impact of the improvement (square footage saved, inventory reduced, etc.).
