Efficient Placement Tools

Posted in Seiton

In the context of lean manufacturing tiniest things must be done carefully, including the placement of tools used for assembly or maintenance work. This is where 5S is very important especially in Seiton concept of placing the goods or tools in accordance with a designated place.

Some of the reasons why must be an efficient placement are:

Waste movement
Reduction of motion like this is indeed the purpose of a campaign to lean manufacturing in order to reduce costs caused by inefficient labor movement. These movements are referred to as taking the appropriate tools, search tools, return to the workplace, high and low placement of furnishings and so forth. If not carefully considered it will be a real waste.

Reduction of movements involving manual labor

It is important in lean manufacturing is to reduce the movement of goods and service as short as possible. The use of hearing aids in the transport of material handling is absolutely necessary to minimize the use of physical force operators. This is intended to save human power that controls the activity of manufacturing. However saving human power can be saved by implementing lean manufacturing 5S well.

As discussed earlier that lean manufacturing will be achieved only if they can reduce the time or the movement of manufacturing activity. To reduce this many things can be done for example by automation, material storage closer to the production process or by recruiting more members to pursue the time of production and others.
