    5S is a discipline
    Six Sigma is a system5S should integrate with Six Sigma in order to achieve maximum power. You can apply 5S to clean up the entire system, apply Six Sigma for later breakthroughFL

    Hi Dominic,
    As you know, 5S stands for Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardise, Sustain- which are very basic in nature and fundamental in nature. 5S will help you to eliminate waste, by taking simple steps. Manytimes, if the 5S is not done problem, you may not get the corretcc picture of the scenerio.
    Six-sigma is a breakthrough methodlogy and will help you to improve your bottomline. In the absence of 5S, it will be very difficult to identify the problem iteslf. So having 5S before six-sigma will help to identify and focuss the pain areas and help to prioritse the isses.
    Cheers,
    Ajit

    Define powerful.
    Depends on what your issue is.  In my world, 5S is a tool we use within Lean Six Sigma.  They are not mutually exclusive if the project calls for a lean improvement.

    Dominic,
    I would offer a little to what the others have already said.  5S and Six Sigma have different purposes and appropriate applications.  Just as a chisel and dynamite have a different purpose and appropriate application.  If you use a chisel where dynamite is appropriate; you will waste a lot of time, become discourages and probably quite.  Additionally, if you use dynamite where a chisel is appropriate then you will probably end up with a mess.
    So to with 5S and Six Sigma.  I wouldn’t worry so much about which is more powerful, but rather when is it appropriate (or inappropriate) to use either.
    Good luck…

    Sick Sigma is more powerful I guess. Sick Sigma practitioners make this forum worthless with many non value-added postings.
