A place for everything and everything in its place. Many of us may have heard that saying growing up, but who knew it could actually make you money? That’s what Matt Worthington, formerly a low profile Welder and now a Production Lead in McCullough’s Kenton, Ohio facility, learned when he got organized and was able to increase output from two low profile hoppers per day to five. Matt focused on cleaning and labeling his workspace – classic 5S (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain) techniques that promote safety and efficiency – and organizing his work into a new schedule format that allowed him to more than double daily production. His new focus and extra efforts will result in an additional $372,456 in revenue for McCullough annually.

Lesson Learned: Get organized. Much like clearing your mind when you’re stressed or overwhelmed, the act of cleaning and organizing your workspace can make you more efficient and help you to better focus your efforts.
