What is 5S?
It is no secret that the execution of Lean is 20% technical and
80% social. At present, many companies have a firm understanding of the technical
side, but fall short of their development goals because they can’t make the essential
changes on the social side.
As a result, gains are short term and aren’t constant and the
program loses thrust and eventually support. While most of today’s managers understand
the principles of 5S and can make the connection between execution and a cleaner,
better structured work place, few understand the fabulous potential the 5S implementation
process has to truly empower the people, resulting in a culture of constant improvement
that will make sure sustainable results. Note: the activities may vary from day
to day other than what is described within the syllabus.
Although theoretically simple, execution of the 5Ss often becomes
a real challenge as you work to:
- Start an energetic team environment with the attachment
of all employees’ involvement.
- Introduce areas of independent team decision making and continually expand them
as you develop team member skills and knowledge.
- Build a vision of workplace conversion, team development and visual standardization
that is shared by management and operators.
