Meet Simon W
“I’m proud to use my practical experience running shops efficiently and my work-study know-how to train the next generation of work-study professionals.
My years of experience have made it easy for me to spot when individual workstation layouts aren’t optimal or, on a larger scale, that a different layout would help stock management, for example.
I’ve built on my practical instincts with specialist training in movement analysis and Method-Times measurement to hone my skills in spotting better ways of doing things and undertaking analysis of how individual movements add up to get a task done.
Extra steps or movements that aren’t as easy as possible for a colleague all add up to extra process time and colleague fatigue. The deep dive movement analysis techniques quantify potential time savings that make a big difference and are hard to spot any other way.”
