Brainstorming is a powerful lean tool but it is slowly starting to fade as a process for generating ideas and getting the participation of all group members. But it is these two benefits that brainstorming should be a common practice within any meeting requiring ideas, root causes, and solutions. This presentation provides a detailed outline of the reasons for brainstorming and the steps of performing the processl.

Why Brainstorming • Tool to generate new ideas • Tool to generate a high volume of ideas • People get stuck on discussing details instead of being creative • Able to consider every possible angle of a problem • Able to obtain group involvement • Allows team members to build on each other’s creativity 2

What to Brainstorm • • • • Root Causes Ideas for solutions of causes Possible inputs and outputs of a process To generate a list: – Critical machine parameters – Team Norms – Future problems to solve • Almost anything can be brainstormed 3

Brainstorm Ground Rules  Write the problem at the top of the board  Set a time limit (5 to 20 minutes)  Ask each member in rotation - Everyone takes part, members are allowed to say pass  NO CRITICISM of ideas from others  Let yourself go – wild ideas are welcome  Quantity of ideas is the goal  Write everything down   Spelling not important Group Ideas Ensure the ground rules are not broken! 4

Determine Which Ideas are Selected • Number the ideas in the brainstorm list • The number of votes per person is 1/3 of the total number of ideas in the brainstorm list. For example if there were 18 ideas then each person would have 6 votes • Everyone places their votes according to the idea number on a piece of paper • The person conducting the brainstorm session collects all of the papers • The ideas with the most votes are selected 5
