PDCA of the Month – “Backordered Light Fixtures” – April 2010

This simple PDCA was a joint effort between the jobsite Construction Professional and the electricians, and has several things going for it: 

  1. It included the Building Partner (the Electrician) in problem analysis and counter measures
  2. The counter measures were simple and successfully implemented
  3. The PDCA group met to follow-up on the success of the counter measures
  4. There is tangible improvement both in the job completeness of the electrical activity and in the First Time Quality Score

It took a couple of weeks to implement last December, but this PDCA cut out return trips to the jobsite for the electrician and has gotten the Construction Professional’s building schedule back on track. Good job!
