This seems like a very smart lean paint can. Think of painting a room — anything other than applying paint to a wall is “waste”. This new paint can helps eliminate some of the waste involved in painting — namely pouring the paint into a separate roller pan and the inevitable cleaning up steps when you dribble or spill paint.
Think to your own factory: How often are people just moving stuff from one container to another? How can you eliminate that waste?
