EIND313 – Work Design and Analysis Flow Process Charting Laboratory DUE: 02/05/2016 5:00 pm for Tuesday labs and 02/07/2016 5:00 pm for Thursday labs Objectives • • • To gain experience in process charting to study a work process To apply a structured analysis method to redesign a work process, and To hone technical writing skills In-Lab Exercise In lab this week, you will practice the mechanics of creating a flow process chart and flow diagram from a video of a coffee drink production process at Renne library. The lab instructor will guide the group in identifying the work elements from the perspective of the worker. This will include a discussion of which work elements are relevant and how the function can be categorized. From this discussion, you will generate your own flow process chart and the accompanying flow diagram of the “current method”. Using this information, you will then discuss how various systematic methods couple be applied to improve the existing design. Sheets for the chart and diagram are contained in your laboratory manual and should be printed before lab. In class objectives: • • • Define point of view in process Identify work elements and definitively define beginning and end of each Define a current method then propose a better process Lab Assignment Now use the skills demonstrated in class to document and suggest improvements to a real world process found in the field. For example, cook preparing food, mechanic changing oil, librarian restocking books, etc. The work process you choose must take place in an actual job site and be amenable to flow process charting and flow diagramming (including a minimum of 15 work elements). Be sure to ask permission before collecting data and be polite to whomever you are observing, you are representing MSU! Observe this process first-hand; you may want to video tape it (again you need permission to do this) for further reference. Then, document the current method using a flow process chart (measuring time and distance) and generate the associated flow diagram. Note that the illustration of the work layout used in the flow diagram should be approximately to scale. Next, generate a set of redesign alternatives using a structured analysis method and brainstorming. Decide on the set of changes you want to propose. Create a new flow process chart and flow diagram for your proposed redesign. If feasible, collect additional productivity data for this revised process. Finally, create a summary table that compare the current design to the proposed redesign to demonstrate an improvement in some dimension of productivity or efficiency. Finally, based on this work design project you select, write a technical document based on the guidelines discussion in Lab 1. In the data collection phase it is appropriate to collaborate with a partner (be sure to document your partner) but the final reports must be written alone. Write the report double spaced and limit it to 10 pages max for the main body of the report. You can include important tables, figures, or pictures in the main body (with captions and cross references), but limit these only to critical items that illustrate your main points. Tables, figures or pictures included in the main body would not count towards your 10 page text limit. Any other material that was the basis of your report (e.g., copies of your process chart and flow diagrams) can go in an appendix.

Submitting your report as multiple files on D2L is not allowed. If that occurs, only the first file on the instructor’s file list will be graded. There should be at least one table and one figure in the document (HINT: there should be more than one given the number of charts and diagrams in the case study!) Table 1.

Starbuck Flow Chart
Flow charts are important diagrams in showing a process. They are graphical sysmbols
that show the nature of a process. They are preferred due to the ease in understanding the flow. A
flow chart helps the reader to be involved and understand the flow faster than in thin using texts.
They can be used in the first development of a proposed program or project. After viewing the
team will be fre...
