Process Improvement Plan

Introduction
In today’s society, every American have a daily process to complete, whether the process involves; cleaning, working, attending school, or just preparing a meal for the family. They are individuals who may think, these processes are easy, but if the process requires a significant amount of time, this will cause a problem for an individual. A bottleneck is a term used, when a process is slowed down by doing a certain activity. I believe if individuals can identify their bottleneck, as a result they can improve the process to better. Process

The process I was trying to improve was getting out of bed, and getting prepared for work. The morning time is the worse time, I always feel as if I have too many duties to take care of in the morning. The process had several steps when I first started. The first step was hitting the snooze button, (2) getting out of the bed, (3) using the restroom, (4) brushing teeth, (5) washing face, (6) combing hair, (7) ironing clothes, (8) put clothes on, (9) put make up on, (10) put jewelry and badge on, (11) warm up car, (12) drive to work. Control Limits

Control limits help measure statistical differences easily for an individual (Godfrey, Stephens, Wadsworth, 2002). The control limits in the process will be 15 below the average amount it will take for the entire process. The average time was 55 minutes, so therefore the process should take 45 minutes or less to be efficient, and discover if the improvement actually helped the process. The standard deviation in the process will be five to ten; so it will be correct in the process. Calculations

The calculations that I implemented was efficiency. The efficiency helped me to measure the loss or gain of a process. The following measurements: mean, range, mode, and median can assist in data collection by providing comparisons of more than one...
