5S Visual Management
Ideal for any business looking to improve efficiency and effectiveness, employee communication and involvement, shop floor discipline, and create a safe working environment by creating a visual workplace.
The 5S system is a series of activities designed to improve workplace organization and standardization. The system stops the causes of errors and defects that later become larger workplace problems.
Do your employees spend more time looking for the right tools than using them? Is workplace disorder and clutter creating inefficiencies in productivity? Are your employees empowered to contribute more towards greater productivity? It’s probably time for 5S.
- 5S uses the following five pillars, and a sixth added pillar for Safety:
- Sort (Get rid of it)
- Set in order (Organize)
- Shine (Clean and Solve)
- Standardize (Make consistent)
- Sustain (Keep it up)
- Safety (Respect workplace and employees)
