What is 5S?
5S is the foundation of all improvements and is the key component of establishing a Visual Workplace. Both are a part of Kaizen — a system of continual improvement which is a component of lean manufacturing.
A 5 S program focuses on having visual order, organisation, cleanliness and standardisation. The results you can expect from a Five S program are: improved profitability, efficiency, service and safety.
The principles underlying a 5S program at first appear to be simple and obvious common sense. However, when implemented in a disciplined manner the above benefits will accrue.
