Skill in Methods

Method Grades

  • Not Observed (NOB) = activity not observed
    Below (B) = somewhat clumsy, fumbles, hesitations (loses time)
    Meet (M) = steady, proficient, average (neither gains or loses time)
    Exceed (E) = safely reduces motion, quick, smooth (gains time)

Method Steps

  • 1. Confirms assignment on the VMU without undue delay.

  • 2. Operator selects efficient picking order and start location.

  • 3. Travels to empty pallet area to obtain correct platform type using a direct route.

  • 4. Travels to selected pick location in most direct route possible.

  • 5. Operator scans to verify location and pallet are correct before picking cases.

  • 6. Parks lift next to pick location, aligns pallet with pick bay to reduce walking distance.

  • 7. Cut and remove plastic wrap as necessary to start pick.

  • 8. Operator selects and confirms correct amount of cases in smooth and continuous motion

  • 9. Operator places cases on pallet without multiple touches or movements

  • 10. Builds shippable ready pallet with one piece of wood.

  • 11. Selects all cases within two bays without moving equipment.

  • 12. Enters in picked quantity on VMU and proceeds in direct route to next pick location.

  • 13. If count back, operator accurately counts remaining quantity and enters in correct quantities.

  • 14. If inventory issue exist, follow appropriate warehouse procedures to resolve.

  • 15. Upon pick completion, initiate print labels via VMU and travel to printer to pick up label

  • 16. Wraps pallet with 6 wraps and no more than 9, in a tight pattern from bottom of platform to top.

  • 17. Places LPN label on top right corner of completed pallet

  • 18. Proceeds to designated staging area in direct route, depositing pallet in the correct lane requested on VMU.

  • 19. Scans the correct stage location to complete the pick and proceeds to next assignment in an efficient manner.

  • Stop Time:

  • Delay Minutes (observed)

Safety Elements

  • Scoring Safety Elements
    Safe (S) = Safe Behaviors
    Unsafe (US) = Unsafe Behaviors
    NA = Not Applicable

  • 1. Maintained all body parts (feet, legs, hands, and arms) inside operator compartment, when in use.

  • 2. Ensured MHE was at complete stop, before dismounting.

  • 3. Maintained lift at proper distance from pallet, during picks / pallet wrapping, to avoid trip hazard.

  • 4. Demonstrated proper lifting techniques.

  • 5. Demonstrated proper driving techniques and sounded horn when entering doors, between cross aisles, around blind spots and exiting trailers.

Performance Estimate

Performance Grades

  • Scoring Performance Estimate
    Below (B) = less than 0 Meet (M) = greater than 0 but less than +10 Exceed (E) = greater than +10

  • Skills in Methods

  • Method Characteristics:
    Below = somewhat clumsy, adds motion, fumbles, hesitation, errors
    Meet = follows methods, proficient, consistent, steady, average
    Exceed = precise and smooth, quick and sure, reduces motions, smart, perfection

  • Effort Level

  • Effort Characteristics:
    Below = slow, not best effort, slow motion
    Meet = steady, enthusiastic, average
    Exceed = fast, focused, sometimes too much

  • Time Utilization

  • Utilization Characteristics:
    Below = does not try to avoid delay, exceeds delay allowances, stops working to talk
    Meet = minimizes delay by following the methods, continues working while talking, sometimes successful at avoiding delay
    Exceed = eliminates delay by eliminating motion, always works - never talks, always successful at avoiding delay
