Lean Production Survey

Who I am…

My name is Jonas Wullbrandt, and I am an EMGT graduate student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  Actually, I am working on my master’s thesis, which will be submitted to the Faculty of RHIT in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Engineering Management.

What I need…

Part of this Capstone Project is a survey in which future engineers and managers like you, will be requested to complete a short survey that asks what you learned about Lean Production and Its Methods. The answers will be aggregately analyzed and used in my thesis to give recommendations of how to further increase success in Lean organizations.

This survey is IRB approved, and its completion will only take approximately 3-5 minutes!

What you get…

If you are interested in the results of the survey or the content of my master’s thesis, feel free to contact me at wullbrj@rose-hulman.edu. In exchange for taking part in the survey, one participant will earn a $20 Amazon gift card!
