Any problem can be eliminated within a week using this insightful and down-to-earth problem-solving methodology. Using what you learn in this book, you will be able to increase the Value-Add time for any and all processes that matter to your productivity, whether in business or in private tasks.
Leonard Sloat shows how you, too, can teach this method and help others to identify problems and address them—on their own, or as part of a Problem-Solving/Corrective-Action team. Every improvement will produce hard savings that can be applied to the cost of any product or process you want to streamline.
Sloat provides examples of problem-solving and improved departmental output from support groups such as Quality, Safety, Delivery (supplier-to-station and shipping to customers), Materials Control, Human Development, Work-cell station-to-station, and Finance.
Study and follow the instructions in Now & Then; they provide the means to see your problems clearly, eliminate the root of the problem, and sustain these positive changes for the long term.
