Computer Wires and the best way to arrange & secure them - experience and links.
Posted on 2006-06-01
Good one for ya:
There is a new program moving through our company which many of you are familiar with already. "Everything has a place" kinda thing. A label under your phone that says 'phone' and under your tape dispencer 'tape'..........well, you get the idea.
Now this 'program' called 5S is not all bad and is a good discussion in itself, but I'd like to focus on 'computer cables/wires'.
*** 5S is now moving into the offices and people are being told to "tie up" their cables with nylon lock ties. This is causing issues with things getting unplugged, then users calling because they can't figure out what happened. Also, someone has already nick'd a cable cutting the tie off with a knife.
I always thought the recommendation was to bind/route cables 'loosely' to prevent interferance, pinching, and allow movement. Any thoughts, or experience with this or examples of how you handled 5S requirements in your I.T. support role?
