Production Reduction by Carrying wastage

Posted in Manufacturing Waste

Any waste would obviously make the productivity will decrease. But this time I will discuss about the decline in productivity caused by carrying waste. As explained earlier that wastage is carrying all the transportation activities which include activities of loading and unloading, transporting goods, unload, move goods from one place to another. Activities related to transport activities is much cause problems and waste that should be eliminated or minimized in stages.

Decrease in productivity is among others caused by:

1. Disrupted delivery schedules
Schedule timely delivery of materials is the key of the machine or production efficiency can be achieved. In the event of disruption to the delivery of the material production then automatically schedules production will also be disrupted. Production is delayed or interrupted because production had to stop because of certain conditions. Productivity of production machines will not work optimally.

Visualize the 5S Improvement with Photos

Posted in Campaign

Every time there is improvement, the image must be created and installed near the last photo to show the chronological series of improvements. If the date of the upcoming shooting events have been notified and recorded clearly in the chart (photos posted on the bulletin board.) This will be the goal and will help increase the desire of workers to continue to show improvement till that date. These charts are also used by supervisors for assessment.


Photography is a great incentive for workers and allow management to continue improvement activities effectively. Through portraits of activity, workers can see first hand his skills with a sense of pride or shame. Awareness that improvement is necessary is a spontaneous reaction to an embarrassing photograph. Conversely, if the portrait of activities shows that the regulations have been implemented 5S, workers have set a good example and a role model for her coworkers.
