Desert Dingo – Team Challenges Broken Spindle Wheel flew off the course Shredded alternator belts Burned through valve cover gasket “We made too many mistakes” – Jim Graham, Team Owner
Desert Dingo – Field Observation Volunteer workforce; VW fans No standard work “Did we get a task completed?” – common question Bypass steps due to lack of material/tools No sense if we have the right tools/material “Each person has their own tool box”
Desert Dingo – Before “Khaled spend a lot of time watching everything we did; how we worked on the car, What tools we used, how we packed for a race, how we set up out pit, what each Person di during a pit stop” – Jim Graham
Desert Dingo – Teaching 5S 5S easy to understand and teach With 5S, you can see results right away 5S is a great lead-in for “understanding the benefits of standard work” The Desert Dingo team took to 5S “like a duck to water”. Very organized people to begin with; just needed the coordination.
Desert Dingo – After 5S “We now have a rule that everybody adheres to: If you take a tool from the table, you return it to the exact same place immediately when you’re done with it. It took some time for everyone to get the hang of it, and the team now does not waste Time looking for wrenches and such” – Jim Graham
Desert Dingo – After “The recommendations made changed how we race. None of it would surprise a pro team, but for us it was a revelation. We are remarkably more efficient in prepping the car, packing, and managing logistics. We’ve shaved minutes off our pit stops.” – Jim Graham
Standard Work has permeated the Desert Dingo team culture
Desert Dingo 5S – Lessons Learned Standard work will shave minutes off the pit crew time; which improves team finish Even though the pit crew is volunteers, they still prefer a more organized workplace.
