This article focuses on the actual manufacturing processes and Lean principles to reduce waste, such as idle spindle time, lost time during set-up, or for loading and unloading work pieces. ...
I found this article to be a positive step in the right direction for 2015. There are many ways to incorporate increase production by oneself but this article gives you actionable steps to get this accomplished during the year. See the list below:
- Get up earlier: Use time to plan your day, read email, exercise, or meditate
- Prioritize prioritizing: Have a to-do-list and update it
- Organize your day in blocks of time: Try using 90-minute work blocks with 10-minute breaks
- Dump multitasking: it doesn’t work (think set-up time)
- Limit decisions: Save time for important decision not trivial ones like food or clothes
- Get started: Tendency is to complete projects
- Set systems, not goals: Systems are long-term process, Goals are short term
- Take naps: a 20- to 30-minute nap will make you more alert
