Forklift trucks are ill-suited for this task, whereas, carts can be customized for a wide range of tote and bin deliveries. Ultimately, eliminating waste, managing a smooth flow of materials, and reducing non-value-added steps to achieve JIT is the goal of lean for becoming an efficient operation.
The whitepaper includes an intensive thought-provoking analysis and objective data about employee injuries and deaths, cost burdens associated with forklift accidents and citations. There is also information about high labor wages, expensive training programs, and scarce labor availability and manufacturers' unsaleable rates. The information included examines lean alternative for manned forklift transport as part of continuous process improvement strategies.
