1.Don’t be scared of change
Don’t be afraid to spend some time and money on moving around a factory, efficiency could save you huge amounts of money in the future, making any time and money spent an investment.
2.Storage is key
When storing things like tools, products and materials, storing them properly is essential. For example if you have new or temporary staff you want them to be able to find what they need, straight away ensuring a streamline process.
Things like shadow boards for tools are a good way to see tools clearly and also to see if tools are missing so they can be accounted for. Also, when storing materials clear labelling is essential so time isn’t being wasted.
Once things are in order, keep them in order, once things have been properly organised and are in an efficient manner, keep tools in the right place and materials stored properly. This will keep processes streamlined and cause fewer complications in the future.
4.Use Drawers and Part Bins for small parts
When storing large amounts of small parts like screws, nuts and bolts, consider drawer storage or multiple part bins that are segmented into different sizes. These can be used within an existing shelving/racking system allowing you to keep relevant products close and this will allow products to be easier to access and organised better.
