The Iron: Optimizing a mundane function

In this post, I talk about my review and optimization of the ironing process (or chore). The connotation of the word chore says it all: it is an oft unlikable process that is done just because it has to be, not out of pleasure. Similar to many other processes, I enjoy ironing if the process is efficient and optimized.

  1. Core requirements for the task of ironing (why do we even need to iron – clarify that)
  2. Previous experience
  3. Requirements for the new iron
  4. Current experience
  5. Generalizing the principle of process improvement
