Example text

Thanks to Kevin Meyer, founder of the Evolving Excellence blog and the president of Factory Strategies Group, for this outstanding example. Far from the Factory, George Gonzalez-Rivas and Linus Larsson, Productivity Press, New York, 2011, 108. Chapter 2 Spotting Value, Spotting Waste Allison’s Story Allison is an anesthesiologist at a major hospital in New York. Real estate prices being what they are in the country’s most expensive city, her office is only slightly bigger than a closet (that’s a broom closet, not a cedar-paneled, walk-in, McMansion-size closet).

Certainly, he’d classify the shuffling of piles of paper, and the continual sorting and resorting of e-mail by sender/date/attachment, as wasted motion. In a manufacturing setting with a conveyer belt, the cost of these wastes is generally more obvious (well, obvious to people involved with Lean, anyway): Workers struggle to find the right wrench before the piece moves past them, or people in an assembly area stand around waiting for a part to arrive. But the cost is no less significant in an office.

To be fair, she does work a long day, and she doesn’t get as much academic time as she’d like. But when you watch her for a while, you see that’s not the whole story. It turns out that on days Allison works in her office, she’s awfully busy. She spends time moving paper from the left side of the desk to the right side. She spends time looking for articles and printouts. She spends time looking for basic office supplies. She spends time searching for and printing out journal articles that she’s already printed out—two or three times before.
