Love when the 2 Second Lean message gets spread…particularly to the construction industry. Way to go, Ray Lota of U.S. healthcare giant Kaiser Permanent!
“…First, he said, read 2 Second Lean by Paul Akers. Recognize that small wins can mean big improvements — attempt to cut mere seconds off a process. Reduce variation, fix what bugs you and end meetings with a “plus and delta exercise” — that’s 10 or so minutes identifying what the team can do to improve or bring more value to their work. Also challenge and empower teams to identify and eliminate waste…”
Paul Akers find the perfect example to explain poka-yoke: any mechanism in any process that helps an equipment operator avoid (yokeru) mistakes (poka). Its purpose is to eliminate product defects by preventing, correcting, or drawing attention to human errors as they occur. If you like this video, give it a thumbs up & subscribe to our channel.
