Appreciate Productivity and Efficiency : a sterling model for O & M study

Recommended Posts


I am truly impressed with this food staff staff selling Chinese Noodle (Traditional Teochew Mee Pok).

I find that the staff had applied creative thinking or rather truly think out of the box!

Step 1: The helper would take down an order.

Step 2: She goes to this "glass panel" where she placed a thin sheet of paper.

For example, I wanted a bowl of "flat" mee pok noodle; she would write in bold black "BUX".

Here, the mee pok is identified as "B". And as I wanted NO OIL; the UXmeans No oil.

Step 3: At the food preparation station; theman (staff) can see the order that she had written down at his side andsomehow; as the writing is both bold and large;he could actually figure out what I had wanted.

And prepared my bowl of noodles without both uttering a single word. Contrast this to Gordon Ramsay's adage thattheCoordinator must shout out the order! Here, not a single word was uttered!

How'sthis for utter efficiency!

Step 4: When thelast order was completed. The helper taking the order would use another red bold marker and cancel to the last completed order.

And this would certainly helpfood preparation staffto note when to start preparing food again.

Another remarkable division of labour is that when theman behind the counter prepared the noodle; the helperalsohas another job; that is to cook theminced meat, fish balls etc.. inhot water andwhen she received the cooked bowl of mee from him; she will place the ingredients to the bowl to complete the full mee pok package to hand over to thepurchaser.

There are many other methods of telling the cook what to prepare. Some would use coloured tokens e.g. a red token means customer wants extra chili; and a piece of type of noodle on this token to denote what the client needed. This is far too common.

Thus, I am truly impressed with this set-up. Which is truly one- of a kind!

However, their chilli gravy is so so. Good thing is you are allowed to add as much as you want.

Always leave a not do complimentary after-taste. 

Nowadays, I skip this place totally.

Have an appointment shortly at River Valley Close. 

This Teochew Fishball Noodles is nice. 

Always eat here when I am around this area.

Well balanced gravy with lots of fine shallots.

Flavourful and appetising. $4/- per bowl
