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 and proceeds to location without undue delay

2. Operator travels to pick path in most direct route with forks at proper travel height

3. Confirms location is correct and raises forks to needed height without undue hesitation

4. Obtains pallet and scans label confirming pallet selected is correct

5. Enters case count and/or countback as directed by VMU

6. Operator does a visual check of pallet to verify case quantities are correct, wrap and pallet are in good condition

7. Wraps pallet if needed and follows appropriate procedures for missing / damaged cases

8. Verifies pallet is shippable ready fully wrapped and labels applied

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

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

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
