Introduction to 5S

5S is workplace management where the work area and workplace are organized and ritualized to minimize the loss of time and the use of movement.

Originally part of Lean manufacturing philosophy (also known as the Toyota Production System), its principles for eliminating wasted time and unnecessary motion are universally applicable to everyone and every business.
5S is much more than ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’.

5S comprises five principles to make people highly efficient and effective in their doing work.

1. Sort Keep near you only what you regularly use
2. Straighten Find exactly what you need to use in less than 30 seconds
3. Shine Have your workplace and equipment ready for immediate use
4. Standardize Everyone does each job in the same way and is challenged to improve it
5. Sustain Everyone does their part to foster a safe, efficient and effective workplace

5S is to there to help you do masterly work. Its purpose is to help people do perfect work every time. 5S is really about:

1. Preventing mistakes that ruin a job and makes scrap and rework
2. Making sure equipment is reliable and works properly to make a perfect item every time
3. Removing and preventing useless variation in work activities and machine performance
4. Delivering exact quality products and service ever more quickly
5. Keeping people and plant safe from hazards and harm
