GET ORGANISED: IN THE WORKSHOP TIME We understand
the importance of time and its direct connection to profit. After examining various types of businesses in the manufacturing market we have mapped out the differences, similarities and success factors for efficient and cost effective tool management. Those factors became the foundation of our Ready, Steady, Go! system. INCREASE YOUR EFFICIENCY You will know where every tool is. Always. This increases your efficiency in each task you meet, which leads to a higher production rate. The system brings everything into order by arranging your workplace into three fundamental zones. READY The Ready zone contains your basic range of tools that you can lean on, but that you rarely use. It can be tools you use once a week, once a month or once a year, but as soon as you need them for your current task, you move them up to the Steady zone. STEADY The Steady zone contains the range of personally selected tools that you use every day. It can be in the form of a tool board, a roller cabinet or a similar product. It needs to be closely located to your Go zone to make the collecting and returning of tools more effective. GO! The Go zone is where you perform the actual work. You need the right space and equipment that lets you perform at your best. It is vital for the tools to be in order when you move between work activities, because lost tools equals lower production rate.
