5S is a Japanese term that stands for Seiri(Sort), Seiton(Set in order), Seiso(Shine), Seiketsu(Standardize), and Shitsuke(Sustain). When a 5S program is implemented correctly, a safe, lean and clean workstation is the result. It is easy to spot missing tools, empty flow racks, safety hazards and overproduction. Workflow is simplified and nonconformity are easily identified. You’ll also have the satisfaction of working in an environment that you’ve taken ownership of thoroughly cleaned, organized, optimized and maintained.
