Rite Aid Liverpool, NY

Lean Six Sigma Intern January 2016- August 2016

Tote flow optimization

Created a value stream map of distribution center activities using a SIPOC diagram and process flow chart

By cause and effect matrix pinpointed tote label allotment as the bottleneck

Performed pilot tests with a 50% reduction in tote label allotment size, which increased process efficiency by 21%

Reduction in tote label allotment size expedited number of labor hours by 90 minutes in 2nd shift

Decreased labor hours salvaged modules operating budget by an estimate of $162,000 per annum

Inbound receiving process optimization

Performed time study for various samples of received good, from initial receiving till racking

Utilizing 5 Why’s and Brainstorming, concluded that receiving lanes were not ergonomically set up

Implemented Kanban card system in receiving lanes as visual process control for inbound flow

Organized receiving lanes facilitated decrease in freight waiting time by 50 minutes

Implemented 5S in sorter work area and improved inbound operation efficiency by 12.5%
