Figure 1First-In First-Out in Seiton very important to load and prepare the correct WIP. The principle of First-In, First Out should be noted that the first goods that can be retrieved and placed first used as well. FIFO rule is preferred over other cargo, namely the Last-In, First-Out (LIFO), where new parts are stacked above the old parts. With LIFO, only new parts are used and which remain under the old and unused. This can potentially cause problems in quality control.

When you load the stock with a forklift, the position of each pallet will be determined by the direction of the forklift. Therefore, if the pallets are placed in one direction as in the image palette can not be taken by the FIFO. Trajectory should be made to the carrier as shown in figure 2. Storage shelves should be wide and shallow like a chest of drawers, or has many entrances.
