One of the key fundamental tools of process improvement is 5S.
5S is a methodology for organizing and minimizing items within a workplace, in order to make it operate more efficiently. This is accomplished through the following phases:
- Sort – getting rid of what is unwanted and not needed anymore
- Simplify – designating the proper location for needed items
- Shine – clean and organize workplace
- Standardize – everyone doing and identifying things the same way
- Sustain – integrating 5S into the daily activities
This course provides you with an overview of 5S, how it can benefit your company’s performance, an explanation of each category, how to get started, things to avoid, and tips for leadership.
