CVA or NVA – Motion – 7

Next category in our downtime analysis is motion. Motion is poor organization within work area or location of equipment needed for the job or extra setup time.

For example if you have to log into a system to get data, then spend time to log into another system to input that data and then finally use another system to verify data, then you are wasting a lot of time switching between systems.

Same way if you have to use the phone a lot and it is set up in such a way that it takes you a few minutes to find it or answer it then you should think about moving it to a new place where it can be easily accessed.
