We all arrived in our plants this past week, and it could not have been more exciting. I am now working at a plant in Florida. Upon arrival I was told that I would be training for the role of second shift production supervisor. This is the kind of role that most of us had expected to receive, but what I wasn’t expecting was that I would be the only production supervisor on second shift. Being the only production supervisor means that I essentially have responsibility over the entire plant. Obviously this came as a big shock, but it is an even larger opportunity.
The yellow belt project that I will be completing during my supervisor training is going to be working on increasing the efficiency of one of our product lines. I have been looking at ways ways to help the line be more efficient. Hopefully by working on this, I will be able to drive improved efficiency.
