  1. Hi Andrew, I have run multiple tests on Lean at home tip 1 and have found this to be benefical. I would like to make 2 observations though: 1. There is a small amount of motion waste in pre-sorting the cutlery; and 2. There is the issue of spooning that can lead to rework.

    • Thanks Daniel

      Any Motion waste on pre sorting should be less than that spent sorting.
      We have had this method in our house for some time, though it needs constant reinforcement, it is effective, but I do often Rework the cutlery into the right spots.
      I could install some Visual Management i.e. signs on the dishwasher, or Mistake Proof by making the holes only fit one type of cutlery forcing the pre sorting.

      Any other ideas?

      Cheers

      • Ah yes, constant reinforcement ā€“ a prerequisite with teenage daughters. Any other ideas? Chinese takeaway.

      • On 2nd thoughts, make that fish ā€˜nā€™ chips as even the Chinese takeaway containers require washing prior to recycling.
