|Kick Up the Performance of Lean Picking
introduced a great new product that will enhance Lean and 55 functions.
The Indicator bin is two colors! The largest section of the bin is one
color, for standard stock. The smaller portion is bright orange. This
allows safety stock to be placed in that section. When the inventory is
low in the bin, the operator can just flip the bin to the orange side.
This allows them to keep working by having safety stock readily
available, but also serves as a visual signal that replenishment is
The bin is also unique because it is designed to be
picked from both ends. They have also integrated a rolled ridge design
to kick up the capacity of the bins. There are big areas for labels on
each end of the bin. The bins come in two sizes and are made to work on
12 inch steel shelving, 14 inch wire shelving or pick rack systems.
Itís a great way to improve handling without a really expensive inventory control system.
Thatís effective inventory control at a glance.
