Faced with a jumble of model components, teams shifted to high gears to assemble a series of "fit" concept cars in record time. Flow optimization is critical to success as teams are challenged to form extremely efficient assembly lines and reduce successive builds to seconds. The pressure increases with the realization that each car has a specific style and extras. Quality is everything; The final output from sedan to sport utility vehicle must meet customers' demanding expectations. Speed is rewarded, but small mistakes can send teams down the rankings. As the learning process progresses and each step is reviewed, the focus will shift from individual team time to sharing best practices across teams to achieve the best possible production time. The final group time was measured based on the previous participant's best results.
In Need 4 Speed, teams explore the practice and understand best practices and process improvement in an engaging, hands-on setting. Need 4 Speed shows how processes can be improved if a consistent methodology is applied and all team members take ownership of changes and implement them. It's a great platform for people to start discussions in a fun, hands-on setting.
The model cars' super cool design and tactile nature will surely please everyone involved.
