Detailed Design Review Notes
Chris-materials or resources needed
Beginning of shift -yes or no?! Wyatt-start of shift!!! 5:30am set-up
Have to check the specific dates of each kaizen in advance to avoid production issues
Cleaning station = "wash room"
Number of vats/dump tables to start the kaizen with
Need provisions/fall back plan if production gets behind after 4 hours, 6 hours, etc
John- Training in kaizen for the employees? At least in the first one to go over degrees of freedom, rights & responsibilities, ground rules, etc.
Chris-communicate the entire plan & all its details
Multivac OEE??? How will we measure it? Chris-OEE is best to tell right/wrong direction
Is everything that was scheduled for that day getting done? really important not to get behind
stainless tables (not good in case we need to cut other products)
Chris-Kaizen by itself they already have spare tables. See if the employees can just do it
Ross training has been why we're short staffed
Steph-smaller conveyor possibly available; maybe modify movable workstations on that one
Wyatt- Stainless tables: might need to do cutting at the conveyor, so we need poly topping; removable stations
Movable everything's still taking up space because of storage
18ft, 30ft; conveyor from R&D room, maintain 2ft of cutting surface, they were going to make them detachable
Short conveyor would be sufficient
John - cardboard cutouts in a separate space in one day; maybe use the R&D pilot lab to do this as a Kaizen
DECISION: short conveyor is coming in, so use that one, and re-evaluate space metrics
Casters: is there a way to quantify the change?
Drain bucket flush with bottom
Diameter of springs: 3/4", getting gummed up? Larger spring diameter could be better
400 lb total
Can't get stainless springs, but Jesse has found them, will research more
Drain for the springs, spring is removable too
Scott likes the concept!
Chris/Wyatt- grate traveling along side of table; 1/16" or 1/8" depends on testing
Stainless or a UHM material, help it slide, don't worry about metal on metal?
Try to modify first
Drain bucket handle welded in, stationary
Look into where to get pieces made, welding parts done
Scott: in-house maintenance resources, or outside contractor; time is the only issue
Window of time: let Chris know so we can find in house resources
Scott-is this gate latch going to be enough for 300 lb?
Look into the material "vinyl foam" being able to be used in a raw food environment
MSDS sheets for the chemicals/materials
Will the latch stick out so far to catch on anyone's leg or clothes? Nope its all good
Are the casters bolted on? Right now yes, so it should be relatively easy to remove & attach new ones
Will the wheels work too well & allow the dumper to "escape?"
Angle the handle out to accommodate foot length of user
Attach at more than one point so there is no twisting
Write an email to everyone to list all of the action items discussed in the presentation
