Put all of your part As in one area, your part Bs in another, and, hey, even your part Cs if you're feeling crazy! T hat w ill enable the person in charge of mi xing the materials to count each part periodically and ensure that there were no batches w ith too many part Bs and too few part Cs, for example. By giving each component its ow n area, you're making sure you're taking equal parts of A , B, and C, and if there's a chance to take a break or if there's an opportunity where the mi xer is caught up and he or she has got enough material, having the materials separated w ill allow him or her to count and make sure it's even across the board. With a mi x like that, you' ll make even Sir Mi x-A- Lot proud!
