In the past three weeks, LANL employees have submitted more than 200 cost-saving ideas to the Laboratory Integrated Stewardship Council (LISC) through a direct email address and a blog on the lab’s internal website.
Submitted ideas went through a screening and scoring process aimed at finding everything from “low-hanging fruit” (easy to implement, high potential savings) to longer term, more complicated projects. And some of those ideas were submitted anonymously.
Other criteria included the ability to measure the savings, the impact of implementation, and whether the idea presents any compliance issues with safety, environmental, labor, or other regulations.
Meanwhile, a LISC subcommittee has met three times and came up with the following recommendations:
• Reviewed and captured suggestions received from Laboratory employees on cost savings and improved productivity.
• Developed criteria to rank the feasibility of implementation of these suggestions.
• Brought recommendations to the LISC for approval to implement.
• Identified leads for implementation of approved projects and recommendations.
• Tracked progress and helped break down barriers for implementation.
