Using an A3 Report to streamline my sorting and storing process

Recommended Posts

Seems like a lot of work.  Maybe it'd be good for explaining how you sort to others, especially if you wanted to teach someone how to sort your collection, but all of that I have in my head before I begin sorting, so taking the time to organize it in a visual fashion would not be a good use of my time were it just me sorting.  However, everyone has their own styles of organizing things, and if this works for you, awesome!

Took me less than a day! You can even print out a blank template and do it by hand. I would have done that, but this was for an assignment.

The A3 Report is not about showing others about how a process is done. It about having a problem and coming up with a solution to remove the root cause of the problem.

After I labeled my bins I don't think I could ever go back. It lessened frustration of finding bins and shaved minutes off my storing time.

That is the beauty of the A3 Report! Any AFOL unhappy with their sorting or storing process can use a blank template to help them with their unique methods and problems.
