Welcome to Lesson 9 on the topic of Storage Solutions. In the previous lesson we discussed material storage at the workstations and Points of Use. In this lesson we’ll expand on that theme by looking at storage options for Supermarkets and warehouse areas.
In this lesson we will be looking at several examples of storage solutions and when to use them based on the characteristics of the parts being stored. During this process it is important to keep in mind that a key component of Material Flow is to reduce waste. RIP Racks and Supermarkets take up a lot of space and must be designed and used correctly.
