3 PROJECT GOALThe main goal of this project is to improve the scanner availability and surface visibility scanning.
4 PROJECT CHARTER BUSINESS GOAL PROBLEM STATEMENT GOAL STATEMENT PROJECT SCOPEPROJECT PLANImprove scanner availability and scanning scores.Assign scanners and cabinets to every pay location.Unavailability of scanners.Impending deterioration of scanning performance.Ease access and strengthen accountability.Inventory of scanners
5 SCANNER PROBLEM Lowering scanning rate Shortage of Scanner/UnavailabilitySlow Operation/ProcessingPoor AccessMarked Scanner ScreenUnaccounted employees for scannersLack of scanner holder being usedPoorly charged scanners
6 IMPACT TO OPERATIONLack of scanner availability may reduce scanning score.Mismanaged/inadequately charged scanners may affect scanning performance.Unavailability of scanners

10 INITIAL SOLUTIONS CRAFT EMPLOYEES Improve the accountability for scanner check out. Craft employees must fill-out the sign out sheet before taking the scanner.Scanners must be returned to the dock/charging stations immediately after use. Employees should not forget to fill-out the sign in portion of the sheet after returning the scanner.
11 INITIAL SOLUTIONS SUPERVISORS Obtain spare key for scanner doors. Supervisors/Team Leaders on respective tours should have duplicate keys for their scanner doors.Enforce strict compliance of the use of sign-in sheet.Conduct a stand up talk to remind all employees being accountable for every scanner they take.
12 INVENTORY 132 cradles/charging stations are available. Out of the total 132 cradles/chargers, approximately 38 scanners are only available.
13 IMPROVE RECOMMENDATIONS Designate/assign a number of scanners to respective operations.Scanners should be stationed at the supervisor’s desk.
14 IMPROVE RECOMMENDATIONS Cradles and scanners will be stored inside the cabinet.Cabinet should be locked at all times. Lock codes should only be provided to supervisors, alternates, and team leaders.
15 ALTERNATIVEThe RX14-30 mobile cabinet is ruggedly constructed of 16-ga. CRS and includes heavy-duty casters.
