After 5S, workplaces are better organized; tools and documents are stored in well-defined places. Work becomes easier, and problems are discovered more quickly!
5S is an improvement strategy based on five simple principles:
1- Get organized (remove unnecessary items),
2- Situate (everything useful in its place),
3- Shine with cleanliness (to avoid problems),
4- Standardize (everyone knows what to do)
5- Follow-up (we improve regularly).
Find out how to apply the message, “If you’re going to do something, then think it through, plan it well, and do it right.”
No experience is necessary to put this strategy into practice, and it is often regarded as a basis for continuous improvement.
