Operator Module 4 Smart Placement: The Problem and The What-Is Map

The next four modules are a part of the WTMS sub-protocol called Smart Placement. They represent a powerful opportunity for your associates to launch an all-out attack on motion, caused by the illogical layout of function. Module 4 describes that problem through a series of hands-on experiments.

As part of this, your teams examine a company case study that demonstrates the struggle caused by the un-intentional location of function. Then they develop What-Is Maps of their work areas in order to discover the current level of motion there, triggered by un-smart placement.

This process also un-covers safety concerns and risks that are often un-seen and therefore unaddressed. The session concludes with each team’s frank and grounded presentation of their findings. By then, associates have internalized their interest in making the placement of “things” in their work areas smarter—much smarter. They are ready to own the problem and solve it.

“Exceptional, viewing the workplace through the eyes of value-add
associates—instructing, coaching, and guiding us through a visual conversion.”
