Functional Reviews across technologies at Solihull are’ TIC'ing’ along nicely with teams presenting their great improvement ideas.
We meet one of the first teams to go through the reviews.
Meet the Waha Wanderers TIC Team
Who’s in the circle?
The team is made up from Circle Leader and FA2 Off-track WAHA Chan Bhatia, FA2 Off-track WAHA Group Leader Vicki Gavin, FA2 Off-Track WAHA Sam Watts, and FA1 Current Manufacturing Engineering Tom Marhsall.
How did you come up with the team name?
We took inspiration from the area we work in, and also wanted to get in a mention to my football team which has recently done well. I'm hoping our team will replicate what the mighty Wolves has done over the past few seasons.
What is your project all about?
It's aimed at implementing a traffic management system within the WAHA (Wheel and Headlight Alignment). The area in front of the test rigs can become very congested and we wanted to find a way to control the traffic.
Why do you think TIC is important for the business?
The business gets an opportunity to recognise the potential within their employees, and we get to use our skills and knowledge in different areas.
It gives employees a platform to share ideas to improve a problem that frustrates them while developing their own skills and experience. It's a big win-win for everyone involved.
What’s the best thing about TIC?
It's helped us all improve ourselves and the people we've met, from all ranks, along the journey.
If your circle was a famous team from a movie or TV series who would you be and why?
Guardians of the Galaxy – if you knew us you'd understand.
