Wild Rose 2
As I have said I had the good fortune to work with Wild Rose Brewery. I had the even greater fortune to meet up with Richard at Wild Rose and see they were continuing their own 3S. These guys Sort, Set and Shine as they need to. The culture is such that there is no need to do any Standardize and Sustain. These steps are built in, in their own special way. And the truth is that Sort, Set and Shine are the steps that make the difference, most companies need the last 2 S's to keep themselves on track.
Below is an example of good consistent visual management.
Yellow is for BREWING use ONLY
Blue is for FILTRATION use ONLY
Orange is for PACKAGING use ONLY
Again nothing overdone (over processing), a good simple approach.
