Bottlenecks in My Daily Driving to Work The data collected from the process identified in my Week, One enumerates my daily driving to work and the factors that affects the process. This paper will further elaborate the entire process and the bottlenecks identified. The bottlenecks in the process could be termed as phenomenon where the performance or capacity of the entire system is limited by a single or limited number of components or resources. As technology improves these bottlenecks are addressed, but there is always another bottleneck, just as Goldratt stipulates (Chase, Jacobs, & Aquilano, 2006). Leaving home for work daily entails that I make sure my vehicle is free from all obstacles. I have a secured underground parking stall, which always makes this process very smooth, because my parking lot is very safe and secured and always monitored by an electronic device that ensures safety. I would thus drive out of my stall and merge with the major highway that leads to my work. Mostly the process is monotonously smooth. However, I encountered about a minute delay sometime during the week because lots of vehicles were on the queue, trying to exit the underground parking entrance. This was one bottleneck that affected the usual smooth process of my daily driving to work. Another bottleneck which usually affects my daily driving to work is the traffic lights that I encounter sometimes on my way to work. In other to avoid bottlenecks, I always leave home very early enough to always have time on my side so I can play against all odds. Two days ago, the major bottleneck I experienced...
