Eliminating Forklift Traffic by 80 Percent through Process Improvements

Process Improvements by Eliminating Forklift Traffic by 80 Percent

 
PRLog - Aug. 2, 2014 - In the whitepaper "Forklift-Free: Driving Safety and Profitability” the assertion is made that properly designed systems can reduce forklift traffic by more than 80%, creating immediate process improvements. In the case of horizontal transport, an automated tugger solution with dollies, trains, or carts can easily move the right amount of product for Just-In-Time (JIT) delivery, keeping inventory levels low and aisles free from excess product.

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.
