If you can’t do 5S, you can’t do Lean.
Or, as Gemba Academy co-founder Ron Pereira likes to say, “Without 5S, you can forget the rest.”
5S is a system for Workplace Management, named for a series of steps that all begin with the letter S: Seiri (Sort), Seiton (Straighten), Seiso (Shine), Seiketsu (Standardize), and Shitsuke (Sustain).
The methodology focuses on creating a clean and orderly workspace that exposes waste and makes it easy to identify problems or abnormalities as they emerge.
This 5S online training series provides step-by-step instructions for achieving each “S,” a roadmap for implementation, and a look at how actual Lean businesses use this strategy in their day-to-day operations.
