                        Recommend this article to your friends!

                        A 5S program is usually a part of, and the key component of establishing a Visual Workplace. and are both a part of Kaizen - a system of continual improvement - which is a component of lean manufacturing.


                        The 5S program is focusing on the establishment of visual order, organization, cleanliness and standardization. By introducing 5S the company can achieve improved profitability, efficiency, service and safety for the employees.

                        The 5 principles all appear to be simple and based on common sense, and can relatively easy be implemented in almost all businesses.

                        The 5S principles are listed below:



                        The first step in making things cleaned up and organized


                        Set In Order

                        Organize, identify and arrange everything in a work area



                        Regular cleaning and maintenance



                        Make it easy to maintain - simplify and standardize



                        Maintaining what has been accomplished


                        The implementation of 5S in the workplace will potentially have the following advantages:


                              Reduction of Inventory

                              Less time used for searching e.g. spare parts and tools

                              Reduction of accidents

                              Improve working conditions

                              Reduction of production standstill
