Cerner is a gold sponsor at KCDC this year. We won’t know our location of our booth until Wednesday evening, June 25. Attendees can stop by our booth for stickers, t-shirts, and more.
Excellent for quick, back of the envelope calculations. If you know 2 then you can calculate the third.
1/15/15 – Moved from later in the class as a supplement to the flow point. (cerctr) --- Theory of Constraints – typically we put stuff into the pipe at the rate of my intake area. This will immediately log jam and put pressure on other parts of the system. Everyone’s 100% at capacity except fof the folks that live beyond the bottleneck, who are potentially under utilized. So, go fix the bottleneck via the way work is processed or change the way work arrives (see prior slide). This will open up the bottleneck, so that you can go focus on the next biggest bottleneck. Continue this process until you have a level flow through the process.
Adding resources earlier doesn’t help. Options are to Change way work arrives or Fix bottleneck
Cerner Bottleneck: IP is big enough. Client can’t take them fast enough.
Similar to AMS – SWx – IP
More done in parallel vs. sequential. May slow you down (personally) to speed up the team overall (me vs. we)
It’s called “slow you down to speed you up”. Slowing you down personally to speed up the group as whole. Difficult to accept because people think of “me”
Dev takes 3m although only 1m of man hours
