5S Business Improvement

5S Business Improvement

One of the methods of determining an organisations approach to its business is to evaluate its workplace organisation capability & visual management standards.  5S engages people through the use of ‘Standards’ and ‘Discipline’.

THE 5 STEPS ARE AS FOLLOWS
  • Sort: Sort out & separate that which is needed & not needed in the area.
  • Straighten: Arrange items that are needed so that they are ready & easy to use. Clearly identify locations for all items so that anyone can find them & return them once the task is completed.
  • Shine: Clean the workplace & equipment on a regular basis in order to maintain standards & identify defects.
  • Standardise: Revisit the first three of the 5S on a frequent basis and confirm the condition of the Gemba using standard procedures.
  • Sustain: Keep to the rules to maintain the standard & continue to improve every day.

COURSE BENEFITS 
  • 5S relates to workplace organisation and forms a solid foundation upon which many organisations base their drive for continuous improvement. It is equally applicable & successful in all sectors helping to achieve high impact results.
  • It is a systematic and methodical approach allowing teams to organise their workplace in the safest and most efficient manner.
