Floor tape woes? Here's how to fix them...

When it comes to making your numbers, often one change can make a BIG difference.

For example, one facility had issues with pickers not finding the right boxes for their orders.

Although the boxes were already stacked according to size, the new people didn’t know an S-4102 from an S-4142.

But they did know the difference between green and red.

Making sure your team knows the right location for items can help avoid confusion and delays to productivity.

Clearly defined space is at the heart of the second phase of the 5S methodology: Set In Order or Seiton.

It makes your workflow smooth and easy.
