Brady Corp. has released a new version of Markware Lean Tools, the vendor's facility-identification software. Markware software helps companies to post critical information at the point of use, when implementing such Lean concepts as 5S, Total Productive Maintenance, Standard Work and Kanban. According to Brady, the controls within the application can achieve faster machine setups and changeovers, detect operating abnormalities at a glance and at a distance, simplify the training of operators and other non-technical staff responsible for routine machine inspection and care, and enable more efficient route-based monitoring of numerous performance-management points in condition-based maintenance programs. Markware's Lean Tools software provides a template wizard with hundreds of pre-formatted templates for safety signs, equipment ID, hazardous communication labels and inspection tags. Visuals created by the Markware software can be printed on Brady's Globalmark industrial label maker, which prints durable labels on a variety of surfaces that can withstand harsh environmental conditions.
