Our 5S training will help you with implementing a very important, yet the simplest, lean manufacturing tool.
The 5S Methodology is a way to organize your workplace to turn it into a safer, ergonomic, and more efficient environment through organizing your layout and introducing visual management and standard ways of working.
5S is a team approach and requires the participation of everyone within the area in which is applied to be effective.
After completion of our 5S training, you will have a clear understanding of the different steps of 5S implementation:
Step 1: Seiri, or Sort
Seiri is sorting through the contents of the workplace and removing unnecessary items. This is an action to identify and eliminate all unnecessary items from the workplace.
Step 2: Seiton, or Set in Order
Seiton is putting the necessary items in their place and providing easy access. This is an action to put every necessary item in good order, and focuses on efficient and effective storage methods.
Step 3: Seiso, or Shine
Seiso involves cleaning everything, keeping it clean daily, and using cleaning to inspect the workplace and equipment for defects. This is an action to clean the workplace daily.
Step 4: Seiketsu, or Standardize
Seiketsu involves creating visual controls and guidelines for keeping the workplace organized, orderly and clean. This is a condition where a high standard of good housekeeping is maintained. The first three steps, or S’s, are often executed by order. Seiketsu helps to turn it into natural, standard behavior.
Step 5: Shitsuke, or Sustain
Shitsuke involves training and discipline to ensure that everyone follows the 5S standards. This is a condition where all members practice the first four S’s spontaneously and willingly as a way of life. Accordingly, it becomes the culture in the organization.
