Hi Everyone,
I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place. Sadly, I don't often have time to use these forums and so I'm not very familiar with them.

Anyways, I'm asking for some help with developing an equipment and tool program which designates certain colors of tools for certain uses. I was hoping someone could provide or direct me to an example program. I know this is something that can be very facility-specific, but I was curious how others have set up their programs. It's something we really need to implement at my facility.

Thank you,

Hello Lane,

I have a few links to previous discussion topics for you to check out.

How do you designate zones?

Also there is short article here:

And this supplier has some good equipment and information, including a nice picture.

If you have further questions or comments please post them here.
