Three Levels of Tools
- After a team discussion, the group decided to go to
Wegmans with different levels of tolls to use based on
- Time it takes to fill in the tool
- Frequency of use
- Amount of hard data needed
- Level of employee input
Employee FeedbackThis could be done in form of a white board or suggestion box.
- This would be a quick less than 5 min Project idea board
- Would be used daily, as to be posted in the Cafeteria or other common area
- There is no hard data needed for this tool
- Front line, line operators would be able to use this tool to voice areas of concern.
Yes/No QuestionnaireThis tool could be used in order to see if a the issue is a potential project. The total score can then be used to help prioritize which areas are more important projects to be completed.
- Quick less than 5 min tool to be completed on the floor
- Can be used daily to bring forward potential projects
- No data is needed again for this tool
- This tool could be used by line mangers and above
Project Prioritization MatrixThis tool is the most in depth tool, to prioritize projects at Wegmans. Using data projects would be scored based off of Scoring Guidelines.
- Time dependent on how readily available data is
- Would be used 2-4 times a year
- Data is needed to properly score the projects
- This is the one downfall of this tool, part of this data is not currently recorded
- As Wegmans records more of this data, the more useful this tool is and the more ideal
- This tool would be used by the engineering group and upper management
Examples of Levels 2 and 3 Tools.
