A lot of time can be wasted when employees have to search for things. An efficient storage system will have everything well arranged, with signs to indicate where different items are stored. Use a first-in, first-out system to ensure that older items do not remain in storage while newer items are taken out and used. Take the following steps: a. Establish criteria for deciding how different items will be stored. b. Establish rules and procedures for arranging and managing items in storage. c. Use a first-in, first-out system. Establish criteria for deciding how different items will be stored 2. Establish criteria that will make it easy to decide how inventories, WIP (work in progress) and defective products are to be stored. These criteria should specify: a. Which items are to be stored. b. How many are to be stored. c. How they are to be stored. d. Where they are to be stored. e. How long they are to be stored. f. How quality is to be maintained during storage. g. Who is to be in charge of storage. h. When inventories are to be taken (i.e. checks of inventory contents). Establish rules and procedures for arranging and managing items in storage 3. People who are completely unfamiliar with the storage system should be able to find what they want right away. Prepare a manual with the rules, procedures and standards for arranging and managing the different items in storage. This manual should specify: a. How to neatly arrange storage space. b. The different storage areas for: i. Components, jigs, tools, WIP etc.: designate a location and position within the actual workplace. ii. Finished products: designate a location and position according to shipment lot or destination. c. The different storage methods: container type, by lot etc. d. Which marking method to use, for example: i. Signs (standing or hanging). ii. Letters. iii. Separating with lines, ropes etc. iv. Designated shelves. e. That the name and number of items that are needed frequently, such as jigs, be displayed especially clearly. f. That storage areas can be easily controlled by address and shelf number. g. That the storage system uses a first-in, first-out method (FIFO). h. How to dispose of unnecessary and defective items.

Use a first-in, first-out system (FIFO) 4. It is especially important to organize storage so that items that were produced or purchased first are used first. This is the first-in, first-out system (FIFO). This will: a. Prevent items being stored until they are too old. b. Ensure that items are stored in their proper lots and are easily traceable. 5. To set up an FIFO system...
