Sustainabilist will teach attendees at this year’s SPI in Salt Lake City, UT how to apply scientific process improvement and modern manufacturing science to solar installations to reduce or eliminate costly rework, increase build quality, and improve the transparency of construction processes.
An undergrad at UC Berkeley, Michael Palmquist came to the conclusion that energy was the space he could make the biggest impact for the planet. Once there, however, he found the solar industry to be disorganized and full of wasteful ad hoc processes. 10 years later, armed with experience in the software industry, he came back with a mission and a groundbreaking product: SolarNexus.
Aurora Solar’s founders joined forces with a noble goal: to bring a commercial solar system to a school in East Africa. In the process, their dissatisfaction with the available design tools shaped an entirely new destiny.
Implementing blameless culture at your organization can give you dramatically improved visibility into errors occurring in the field—errors you’ll never find out about if your crews are afraid of being punished.
Swimlane diagrams help you supercharge your process mapping efforts, enabling you to see when, where and how tasks cross department lines.
