Initial Green Belt Project: Program Application Standardaziation
Problem Statement: Currently BWC allows employers to register for many of its programs either on line or by sending in a paper copy. Approximately 15% of all applications are completed via paper application. These applications are often missing pieces of informaiton, some of them are difficult to read, others get missed placed. All of these factors create the increased possibility for errors. In addition, paper applications increase the processing time by 80% becasue the applications must be scanned and entered manually into the system.
Goal Statement: Reduce the number of errors by 10% and reduce the processing time by 80%.
