Assess Space-saving Strategies


Assess further Kaizen opportunities to eliminate waste in the form of packaging, cardboard, foam, wooden pallets, etc. Recycled containers that travel to the supplier and back are common, for example.
❑ Instead of a multi-bin system, look for opportunities to implement a bag system that only requires one container. This will reduce by half the number of bins and shelving space required..
❑ Eliminate line changeover time related to materials by designing Kanban kits (for a specific product or product family) on wheels, that can be rolled to the line quickly and restocked offline as needed.
❑ Formalize the Kaizen process by ensuring that some time every week is spent on process improvement. This would normally take the form of a team meeting on the floor.
