CASE STUDY

It always takes longer than you think

Few people are good at accurately estimating time, whether that's time needed to complete a task or time spent performing a step in a process. This is true of companies as well. Take a simple task such as retrieving a controlled item a labeling worker needs to decorate a run of cans. This process may seemingly take only require a short walk to and from a supervised storage room to get the item, but there's a hidden cost. 

With some simple assumptions we can see how quickly this adds up:

  • Standard, burdened hourly rates of line worker and tool room supervisor ($50/$25)

  • 30 total minutes per checkout for both individuals

  • Multiple checkouts throughout multiple shifts
