Industrial Painting: An Investment in Efficiency!

Saturday, January 10, 2015

Any successful business, no matter how valuable and useful their products and services might be, can be stunted by one common issue: lack of efficiency. The principles of Six Sigma, ISO 9001, and Lean Manufacturing provide a systematic method for helping you to make the most of every asset your company has.

This concept of efficiency is crucial when it comes to your personnel. It doesn’t only involve making sure that nobody is standing around without a task to work on, but also is linked arm-in-arm with helping your team to grow in experience, training, and maximizing their own potential and strengths. This benefits them, and it also benefits you as a business owner.

The principles of Six Sigma, ISO 9001, and Lean Manufacturing also, of course, should be applied to your facility. That’s where we come in!

Painting Services that Lead to Increased Efficiency

Have you ever noticed what a modern city looks like when you’re circling overhead in an airplane? There are certainly a few exceptions out there, but in most cases you’ll see streets that look like organized grids. There’s a method, a pattern, all leading to maximized traffic flow, efficiency, and universal directions that can guide a perfect stranger from one place to another. We believe that your warehouse, manufacturing facility, or other kind of industrial environment can benefit from the same organization.

There is a valuable phrase that is often associated with Lean Manufacturing principles: “A place for everything, and everything in its place.” With this in mind, we thought we would share a few painting investments in particular that can help to promote safety and efficiency in your property:

  • Line striping - These painted lines will help to designate areas for pedestrians only.
  • Aisle marking - This marking system can guide work flow direction as well as define areas meant only for forklifts and other mobile machinery.
  • Bin marking - A coating professional can ensure that storage areas are clearly marked on floors, walls, and racking.

Large companies like Motorola and GE have reported literally billions of dollars in savings by taking the principles of Lean Six Sigma seriously. How much could you save by taking the steps needed to boost your efficiency?
