5S Lean Solution Methodology: Lowering the carrying costs for clients by using less inventory, maximizing available space, eliminating waste, and standardizing.
- Organize supplies based on their functions
- Bin products based on their par level so it’s obvious to see when replenishment is necessary and to avoid overstocking
- Label the supply areas and products, labels depend on the client’s desired future state, bar-code labels are an option
- Map out and redesign supply areas to determine best use of space, as well as the best receiving and unloading zones
