What You Will Learn

Reduce walk time and improve ergonomics with efficient workstation design. Plastic reusable bins and totes are integrated with racks and metal systems to add efficiency and organization to picking and assembly operations. The ability to organize flexible workstations is made possible with reusable bins…they can easily be reconfigured and re-purposed as the needs of the cell changes. When integrated as part of a lean design, these bins make picking and assembly error-proof, reducing re-work and quality issues. Additionally, bin and tote systems deliver improved visual inventory management through color coded bins for common SKUs. Learn how reusable bins and totes deliver efficiency and decrease waste throughout the entire supply chain.

Key Takeaways

1. Learn about the emerging trends in lean manufacturing, related to work stations and cells
2. Understand the important considerations when selecting bins and totes
3. Understand where reusable packaging will drive immediate value in your operation
