As of the start of my 5th week in Lowville, I am continuing to work on my main project. I have been actively collecting time data for sanitation while identifying sources of variation and potential methods of improvements. The facility has a great culture. Everyone here is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. On Monday, I presented what I had gathered in terms of time data and improvement ideas to the plant and production managers, Quality and Sanitation departments, and others.
In addition to working on my project, I have been taking on more supervisory responsibility. I have been helping with organization on the production floor. Workers have started to approach me with their question and issues. I do all that I can help with and solve these issues as they arise. I also take measures to ensure sanitation standards and behavioral expectations are upheld. Though still in its early stages, this experience has already taught me a great deal and am excited to report that there is still much more to learn.
