Teaching is our Passion
The only thing better then improving a process is teaching another how to do it by themselves. Some companies may have a young engineer or technician running projects without an experienced engineer mentoring them to shorten their learning curve by guiding and teaching what has already been learned.
Management may not know how efficient their engineers are due to not knowing how long it should take to accomplish a engineering task. Having an experienced engineer come in once a week to mentor a young engineer or technician can increase their productivity two fold. Challenging them on their project time estimates and holding them accountable will help with their time management. The investment in hiring Productivity Solutions is paid of with improved productivity or lower pay roll by utilizing technicians for performing engineering rolls.
Training College Co-Ops
A manufacturing company was implementing ISO-9001 and hired 4 Co-Op students to rewrite work and test procedures. Tom Perrego taught the students the companies AS400 ERP, how to perform time studies to calculate standard rates and how to write the work and test instructions. Learning how to write these procedures is a big learning curve for young engineers.
