    The ideology behind Lean Manufacturing is to create a set of techniques that eliminate waste and enhance business performance. The system focuses on getting waste out of the supply chain. One way to do this is to use the red tag system. The idea is that red tags are applied to products or items that are no longer necessary and need to be removed. Kanban stations and tags can also help with organization.

    Lean Manufacturing also incorporates the 5S system, which uses visual aids to reinforce standards and highlight abnormalities. In order to achieve this, first place a border around items to designate a home. Then, place a label inside the border and a corresponding label on the product to make it easy to match the item with its home. The 5S system also advises the use of floor marking tape to indicate the proper flow of materials around your facility.
