Some steps seemed to be a waste f time. Below Is a flowchart describing the steps I took to complete the morning routine. Work Preparation Chart Wake up at 6 a. M. Heat oven (2 seconds) Start hot cereal In medium pot (6 minutes) Start biscuits in oven on baking pan in oven (8 minutes) Start bacon or sausage on cooking sheet in oven (8 minutes) Start eggs in small saucepan (1 minute) Eat breakfast (30 minutes) Clean up (15 minutes) Appendix 1. 1 shows the Flow Chart for the morning routine.
Factors like, “what would happen if the task was not done, where is the task done, hen is the task done, and is it critical that it be done then or is there flexibility in time and sequence”, can influence the process (Chase, Jacobs, & Aquiline, 2006). Some of the factors could shape decisions about what to cook and In what order in the process the decisions are made. Factors Like how many pots to use during meal preparation and how quick cleanup would be could determine whether we ate a hot breakfast or not. All the decisions had a certain time frame toe completed in the morning routine.
If one task took longer than necessary, something would not get accomplished. We can gauge different metrics within a process. Time was one metric that needed to be measured. Each activity will be broken down and measured to see It could be combined with another step or eliminated from the process.
