(for Office too)
5S is just about cleaning up and housekeeping, isn’t it? Isn’t 5S just basic common sense? We’re too busy for 5S; can’t we start the Lean implementation in another way? How does 5S compare to 3S and 6S?
Do you need to start stabilizing your processes? Is a Visual Workplace one of your goals? Do you want to reinvigorate previous 5S efforts?
This Lean workshop trains employees on the principles of 5S. Classroom instruction alternates with shop floor exercises to identify opportunities for 5S. Participants learn why 5S needs to be the starting point in their Lean Efforts, how it contributes to stabilizing their processes, what forms of resistance to 5S are commonplace, and how to get started. The tools to implement 5S and the monitoring systems are presented. Lean Programs are continuous improvement processes and the 5S system gets the improvement process started.
