Sort focuses on eliminating unnecessary items from the workplace that are not needed for current operations. Ask yourself: Does it have a function in this area? Is it needed? How often? By whom? Is it in the way? Does it take too much space? 7. A red tag is placed on all items that are not important for operations or that are not in the proper location or quantity. Once the red tag items are identified, these items are then moved to a central holding area (Red Tag Area) for subsequent disposal, recycling, or reassignment. 8.

Unnecessary items are stacked between workers. Excess inventory. Excess items and machines make it difficult to improve process flow. Equipment is dirty and a collection point for miscellaneous materials. Tools and equipment are difficult to find. 14. Practice the old slogan, a place for everything and everything in its place. Place tools and instruction manuals close to the point of use. Design storage areas with a wide entrance and a shallow depth. Lay out the storage area along the wall to save space. Place items so that they are easy to access. Store similar items together and different items in separate rows. Do not stack items together. Use racks or shelves when possible. 15. Use small bins to organize small items. Use color for quickly identifying items. Clearly label items and storage areas to improve visibility. Use see-through/transparent covers and doors for visibility. Remove unnecessary doors, walls, and other barriers to visibility, movement, and travel. Use carts to organize, move, and store tools, jigs, measuring devices. 16. Thank You !
