Flow Chart for Process

A person that wakes up each morning and hits the ground running and I have so much in common. On a daily basis I look for ways to improve my time management. Each and every day I wake up at the break of dawn and prepare my day for a long and strenuous workdayand not to mention my second job as a single-parent. The responsibility that lies on my shoulders is tough and can be overwhelming. I have chosen to design a flow chart to outline my routine in the evenings after work until bedtime. The time spent in traffic getting home, time spent doing homework, and cooking and are factors that can be shortened in my routine. The process flow of the routine begins with getting from work and driving home . My commute to and from work has many obstacles as it relates to traffic during those times. My work schedule cannot be manipulated for ease in the morning or the afternoon. Once my kids are picked up from school and we reach home then the process gets a little bit more stringent. Homework for a small child in elementary school is tough on them and the parents. The next step comes cooking, and then putting food after dinner, cleaning the kitchen can take some time. [have not included end of the process flow – getting ready to bed] The metric is time in this flow chart. I wish there was some way that the time spent doing homework, cooking and getting home in the traffic could be less. Once these steps have all been taken then I can retire for night after a few hours of my evening…...

Aph Maternity Patients Flow Chart

...the way they have the flow of the mother that is in labor is confusing. There are too many floors for the Labor and Delivery process which has the mother bouncing all over the hospital.  If the pregnant mother is in distress she has to be moved to too many different floors. By moving the mother to all the different floors it could risk valuable time. I would suggest reorganizing one specific floor of the hospital for Labor and Delivery only. By having only one floor would help speed up the process for the delivering mothers. The way I would adjust the flow chart for women that are delivering via caesarean section would skip step one and go straight to step seven.   I would do this because a mother that knows she’s having a caesarean section delivery would know the exact date of the delivery. She would have pre-registered prior and be ready for her operation when she walks into the hospital. Once the operation is complete with no complications, then step 6 would be next.   After monitoring the mother and newborn then step 8 would be the next step. The mother would be extremely happy to be discharged with her new baby. If all mothers were electronically preregistered the flow chart would change. It would eliminate the need to register the day of the delivery and allow a smoother transition to the delivery room for the expectant mother. If everything works out smoothly there shouldn’t be any mother needing to go through the admission process at the time of her......

I have selected the process of laundering as illustration of flow chart. •     Design a flowchart using an appropriate tool. The instructor is more concerned with your ability to explain how process design works and why it’s valuable than with fancy graphics I have used the features of Microsoft Word to design the flowchart.

...them they became a part of my daily life. Several factors come into play when caring for foster cats, particularly when they are unrelated. Fortunately, two of the three are siblings. The following is the daily morning routine of cleaning the kennels and litter boxes in flow-chart form accompanied by further explanation to include details. 1. Open kennels and release the foster cats. There are three kennels with two doors per kennel. 2. Remove the litter boxes one by one and place them in the center of the room on the floor. There is one litter box per kennel. 3. Remove the kennel rugs. There is one rug per kennel. 4. Slide out the kennel trays, one per kennel. a. Tip the tray to remove scattered litter and wipe each tray into the trash can. 5. Replace the kennel trays. 6. Retrieve a small trash bag from a container and place on the floor by the boxes. 7. Scoop each litter box. This metric will be measured. 8. Dump the waste into the trash bag. b. Tie and dispose of the bag into the trash can. 9. Add litter to each box as required. 10. Replace the rugs and litter boxes into the appropriate kennel. 11. Proceed with feeding. Several factors affect the process design. The cats have been in the same area together for several weeks and are accustomed to each other with limitations. The first factor to consider is the attitude and size of each kitty. The oldest cat Chester, about a year and a half old, is also the largest......

Production Flow Chart Paper

...University of Phoenix Operations Management Abstract This paper will underline a flowchart of Bimbo Bakeries USA production process and how the business operates on a day-to-day basis. There will also be a metric chart that will show the amount of time it takes for each process to be completed within the production process. A short description of Bimbo Bakeries will also be addressed in this paper as well. Bimbo Bakeries is an International manufacturing company who specializes in producing products such as, Thomas muffins, Entenmanns cakes, and etc. They’re also one of the largest bakeries in the world, and they have bakeries in over a hundred countries. Bimbo has also purchased companies such as, Sara Lee and Hostees, they are expanding very quickly in the U.S. and around the world. Process The process that I perform on a daily basis at work is mixing, which is the second step in the process of producing muffins. Currently, in order to load the ingredients into the mixer, is manually. This concept to me takes up more time to complete, and I think there’s a faster way to complete this step. The type of process for this chart will be a multistage because it has many steps to complete within the process of production. According to the text, “A multiple stage process has multiple groups of activities that are linked through flows( Chase,Jacobs,Aquilano 2006)”. Metric Measure Performance Efficiency Operation time= setup time + run time.......

Design a Flow Chart Ops/ 571

...Assignment Design a Flowchart for a Process Sherry Martin OPS 571 University of Phoenix November 19, 2010 Design a Flowchart for a Process Everyday, people perform daily processes as part of their regular routines and many of them may consume a great amount of time. In this paper, a specific process has been identified and a flowchart has been designed to show the various factors that affect the design process as well as the specific metric that identifies the measurement process. By designing a flowchart for this process, the desired result is to identify how the amount of time involved can be minimized while also making the overall process more efficient. Factors Affecting Process Design The factors affecting the process design include: 1) “Do I get up promptly?” OR “Do I hit the snooze button on the alarm?” 2) “Do I have my clothes ready for work?” OR “Do I need to decide what to wear in the morning?” 3) “Is there a great deal of traffic or congestion?” OR “Is the traffic moving smoothly?” Each of these factors can greatly affect the process design because of their potential impact on the overall amount of time expended. Some additional steps in the process design which have less impact on the overall efficiency of driving to work include: 1) Shower 2) Brush teeth 3) Fix hair 4) Do makeup 5) Breakfast Identified Metric The one metric that has been identified to measure the process is time.

Zara Process Flow

...a part of the overall process.  Additionally, I agree with her suggestion of selling the job. I think that it gets the juices flowing within the applicant’s head as to what they will be involving themselves in. If they are excited about what they hear then it is viable that this will reveal itself in the interview process. Conversely, if they realize they don’t really want this type of position, then they will reveal their disinterest during the interview. In Ms. Quinn's book "Don't hire without me" she stresses that the true benefit of interviewing is when you can get useful and actionable information about the applicant so that you can make a more informed decision.  So I would first develop questions that will help define the applicants "Locus of control".  Compiling a list of responses throughout the entire interview process would assess the Locus of control. If done correctly, applicants should reveal their perception of control without even realizing it. According to the readings, the majority of the interview questions should focus on gathering information in two areas: skills and interest level. Additionally, there is a focus on the “Oh Say” method. Basically, putting the format of questions to a position of asking about specific examples of skill related situations with the addition of Obstacle Situations. Then following up with asking about the specific actions taken and what the end result was. For Zara here would be a process flow for an interview......

Pt 1420 7.4 Flow Chart

...environmental that take place when using hormones to genetically engineer food. According to the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods. Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996. The percentage of Americans with chronic illnesses and food allergies has gone up drastically. Reproductive disorders, autism, and digestive problems have steadily been on the rise as well. Although there is no sufficient research to confirm that genetically engineered foods are a contributing factor to these issues, there is still something about the process of genetically modifying the food that seems immoral and unhealthy. Between 1996 and 2008, US farmers sprayed an extra 383 million pounds of herbicide on GM food producing a "superweeds," which are resistant to the herbicide. This is causing farmers to use even more toxic herbicides every year. Not only does this create environmental harm, GM foods contain higher residues of toxic material. Roundup, for example, is linked with sterility, hormone disruption, birth defects, and cancer. GM crops and their associated herbicides can harm birds, insects, amphibians, marine ecosystems, and soil organisms. They reduce bio-diversity, pollute water resources, and are known to be unsustainable. Roundup herbicide has been shown to cause birth......

Process Flow of Leather Factory

...Identify process flow structure: assembly line production is done as there is production of discrete parts moving from workstation to workstation at a controlled rate, following the sequence needed to build the product. When other processes are employed in a line fashion along with assembly, it is commonly referred to as a production line. Production is done in the chain department (assembly lines) and for each assembly line there is a chain inspector to make sure that no errors are made. After that the product is moved to the final checking department after cleaning through the brush. After final checking, product is moved to the packing department who do the packing size wise and as per contract. Wastes are sold to the small producers. If any problem occurs in any department then it is written on the card and sends back to the department. For correction and alteration each production line has 2 to 3 persons. Process selection: assembly process would be used. Manufacturing process flow design and its rationale and suitability for the organization: manufacturing process flow design is a method to evaluate the specific processes that raw materials, parts, and subassemblies follow as they move through the plant. The most common production management tools used in planning and designing the process flow are assembly drawings, assembly charts, route sheets and flow process charts.

...Design a Flowchart for a process Currently I work on a support desk known as the Ambulatory Service desk. I have decided to compose a process based on how are calls are triaged to the support desk. In which I have discovered in creating this process there are many steps that need to be taken to make sure the calls are sent to the proper support desk. At this present time, I work in the Information Technology field at Rex Hospital as a Clinician Support Specialist on the Ambulatory Service Desk. Also, creating a flow chart to properly triage our calls would assist me and my team on a process to follow, so that our customers are pleased with our services provided. A process that best describes our process would be job shop; this process incorporates different types of services with the same outcome. That is to resolve the issue with little interference to their daily workflow and fixing the issue as soon as possible. The following items affect the process design in preparation of triaging calls 1. Triangle Physicians Network helpdesk receive customer calls 2. TPN desk then triages calls to Ambulatory Service Desk 3. If the system is not working the ASD will further trouble shoot and resolve 4. If the system is working the interface team checks any interface mapping errors The four steps have an impact on the satisfaction of our customers and their relationship with the IT team.
