Check out the pictures below taken of the Rozsa Storage Room. Recently a 5S project was completed in the storeroom and visual controls, the color coded shelves, were implemented as a way to sustain the new organization. The color coded shelves also allow staff to make quick decisions about where they will go for what: blue for sound equipment, yellow for audio visual equipment, and red for lighting and rigging.
University Images recently participated in a kaizen event addressing problems in their special orders process. Special orders are defined as: orders placed by departments and student groups through University Images. Such orders include but are not limited to department apparel and souvenir items. University Images has exclusive vendor contracts and can offer competitive prices. They also ensure licensed, quality Michigan Tech products to their customers.
To learn about the changes made to the University Images Special Order Process, you are invited to attend the Auxiliary Services Lean Report-Out on Wednesday, July 20 at 2:00 PM in MUB Ballroom B3.
Along with the University Images presentation, you will also hear:
– A teachback on improvement event team member roles
– A report-out from the Dining Services Batch vs. Flow Kaizen for Invoices
– An update on the Dining Services Commissary Kaizen
Hope to see you there!!
