This information is also tracked on the VF ergonomics team’s project roadmap. Any engineering solution is documented and communicated to the OEM with the expectation that all future generations and Intel purchases of this tool from the OEM will include this solution. This demonstrates the power of the VF ergonomics team approach: the process ensures that the risk will be resolved at multiple sites, and that any future factory using this equipment will use the same solution. 1 “Not Invented Here” During introduction of a Virtual Factory solution process, Intel encountered resistance to the solutions created at one site and implemented in other sites.

A survey was implemented to gather information from the operators who actually performed the work. Their perception of the tasks that were most difficult and caused discomfort, slow-down, and quality concerns were considered in making final decisions. Also, a more constructive exchange between the engineers and the operators was initiated. Our willingness to alter decisions based on a continuous stream of new DEFERENTIAL ANALYSIS & INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS 49 insights introduced a number of iterations to the re-engineering process and produced a widely accepted end result.

Team deliverables were defined to direct the team’s work towards products or processes to meet the strategic objectives. Critical success indicators were defined to measure the effectiveness of the team. For example, one strategic objective was to reduce non-neutral wrist movements during product handling. ” The critical success indicator was to have four interfaces designed within six months. ” The deliverable was to have a decision-making process identified and engineering criteria defined. The critical success indicator was to have the decisionmaking process ratified by all sites in the first quarter of the team’s charter.
