Productivity Engineering Services LLC (PES), a professional engineering and management advisory services firm, today announced the publication of a new article that describes the remaining steps of how to design a lean material storeroom layout. The two part series was developed to help job shop manufacturers leverage the lean system to plan and design the most practical and cost-effective storeroom layout tailored to their specific operations.
Is your storeroom layout designed for optimal flow? Does it have a place for everything and everything in its place? Do you have the right equipment to make effective use of available shop space and promote efficient storage and retrieval of parts? Are you leveraging material kitting? If not, you’ll want to read “How to Design a Lean Storeroom Layout for Your Job Shop: A Perfect 10 Methodology – Part 2.” This along with the companion article (part 1), describe the steps (from beginning to end) needed to develop the best storeroom layout for your high-mix, low-volume (HMLV) manufacturing environment.
“I trust you’ll find this article to be a worthwhile read, especially if you’re living in an HMLV production setting and committed to making the storeroom and integral part of your lean journey” said Jeffrey Miller P.E., CPIM, SCOR-P, CS&OP, the founder and managing principal of PES and the article’s author.
