Today we are learn about What is Kaizen in Warehouse : Kaizen is a Japanese word that means “change for the better” or “continuous improvement.” It is a Japanese business philosophy about processes that continuously improve warehouse operations and include all employees. Kaizen sees productivity improvement as a gradual and methodological process.
Kaizen’s concept encompasses a wide range of ideas. This includes making the work environment more conducive and effective by creating a team environment, improving birthday processes, ensuring employee engagement and making the job more fulfilling, less tired and safer.
What is Kaizen?
Three Types of Waste in Warehouse or company
1.People waste 2. Quality Waste 3.Quantity waste
People waste occurs mostly for three reasons
1. Over processing 2. Unnecessary Motion or movement 3. Waiting
Over processing : to do more than what is required. Once the inspection is checked, inspecting it for the second time or maintaining something once, then saying and keeping it a second time and keeping it for the third time is called useless.
Just like once cleaning was done then second time cleaning was done which was not required, yet we have done it.
Unnecessary Motion or movement
Because of INTERNET, for any such reason you or your employees are sitting and doing WAIT is called WASTE. IDENTIFY all such WASTE and KAIZEN on it and improve it.
There are three types of quality waste
1. Inventory 2. Over Production 3. Transportation
Over Production – Over production is considered to be a huge waste, if you do a lot of production, it will cause a shortage of space, and this will generate a lot of problems like material not traceable etc.
Transportation – Any company warehouse or company has transportation. If you make a material movement without any meaning then it is waste. Or if there is no VALUE ADD from any transportation, then we should immediately stop unnecessary transportation, otherwise it will be called Transport Waste.
Quantity is from waste defects – if the rejection or rework in your warehouse or company is too much, then it is a huge waste, it can have many other reasons like: Man, Machine, Materials, Method, Measurement and Environment can be our defectives due to any of these reasons, we have to control them
If there is no control, then CUSTOMER will have the defective SUPPLY, and if returned and sent back, the COST will also increase, and CUSTOMER will also not receive SATISFACTIONS.
