Kaizen Tip No. 1: Shop floor layout

How to make layout

Before:
Many years ago people built for their king castle, then church and then they start building houses close to that, roads were built after . Typical town look like you can see on the drawing bellow (blue squares are buildings). Doors (yellow squares) are not facing to the road in all cases.
It is not easy to drive through such city. Many crossroads, narrow serpentine streets...

Kaizen lesson 1

After:
If we build new towns now, first we think of the roads and then we make town plan and build houses.
Such city could look like drawing bellow. Straight wide streets, roundabouts, enough space for everyone. We can go through such town quickly. Every building has door facing to the road

Kaizen lesson 1

Idea:
First make the roads (corridors) in the manufacturing area. After that set up equipment and working place with easy entrance from the corridor.
