It is important in today’s business to be on top of the game with other competitors in the same market. To become successful and a leader in the business world can be achieved by running a lean facility in both office and manufacturing environments. One of the first steps a company can take to become lean is by implementing a 5S program. The foundation for 5S is to ensure that there is a place for everything and that everything is in its place and ready to use. Red tagging is a method used in the sorting phase of 5S that involves placing tags on items to designate their status. Red tags indicate that an item should be removed from a work area. The task of red tagging and moving items can become a little overwhelming if information about the items and where they are going is not recorded. Creative Safety Supply is now offering database software for managing 5S red tag data.
An employee that is in charge of controlling red tagged items will be able to import key 5S red tag data in the database. The software will store information for more timely control and access to the information when it is needed. The software is a centrally controlled database where one can analyze and manipulate data using the RTR tables to update and record ongoing tracking of the red tag program. The RTR allows for flexibility in recording data to best describe red tagging activities for future tracking. A person can analyze data more effectively because the RTR ensures reliability to record accurate data based on pre-selected data entry fields and text boxes.
When information is stored in one localized system such as the database software, a company’s productivity can be increased because information can be found easily without leaving one’s desk by using the RTR to sort, find, and summarize current 5S red tag information. The RTR was designed to be user-friendly and a person can easily access information to report to management. The modified field allows one to track changes to red tagged items that are date specific and therefore would need the most attention.
A business owner commented, “The red tag database software made it easy for us to manage our red tagged items and improved out entire 5S program.”
