Operator Module 6 Smart Placement: Principles 1 Through 7

In this module, your teams study and re-think their current layout of function.

With their Could-Be Maps laid out on tables (and What-Is Maps on nearby walls), associates apply the first seven of the fourteen principles of Smart Placement and learn how to streamline the flow of materials, people, and information into and through their areas by re-thinking the location of things—of functions.

Using the first seven principles, they identify possible improvements: Locate function at/near the point-of-use; No drawers/no doors; Put it on wheels; Capture the full range-of-function; Nothing on top/nothing on the floor; Make it safe/ergonomically sound; and Make function appear/disappear at will.

Your value-add associates apply these principles directly on their maps and see their own assumptions about function evolve. Exciting improvements are on the way.

“Exceptional, viewing the workplace through the eyes of value-add
associates—instructing, coaching, and guiding us through a visual conversion.”
