SORTIdentify what is needed at the machine Based on “current production” needs For our machines would that be a shift? Or Day? What Tools, Supplies and Materials are needed? Only tools needed to set up and run the machine Supplies & materials to get through the shift (day) Red Tag and Remove what is not needed YOU WILL HAVE CLUTTER IF YOU HAVE TOO MANY TOOLS, SUPPLIES OR MATERIALS!
SET Identify a “Place” for everything - Organization Where possible, place tools and materials near where they are used Label locations – so everyone knows where items should be placed and will know when they are not in place (“Shadow” Tools)Standardized Work Stations, Chart Boards, and Tool Shadow Boards can make this easier to manage
