13 Selecting Container Sizes

In this lesson we will cover the subject of Containerization. This is an aspect of a Plan For Every Part, but it is important enough to merit a separate lesson.

There are three main topics that you will be learning in this lesson. First, a clear definition of “Containerization” or “Container Right Sizing” needs to be understood. We will present a formal definition of what is meant, including in this case Four Rights related to Containerization.

Next, you will learn the Eight Main Benefits, including the relationship of Containerization to the traditional Eight Wastes of Lean Manufacturing. Third, you will dive deep into the business case for Right Sizing, including a detailed analysis of how Right Sizing can impact transportation and material delivery flexibility, without driving up cost.
