5'S Workplace Organisation: what is 5S ?

The 5S methodology is a structured program to implement workplace organization and standardization. The 5 S's improve safety, work efficiency, productivity and ownership. And a well organised workplace motivates people.

The programme is called Five S, since all steps start with an "S".

The 5 S's
Sorting deals with the contents of an area and removes all items that are not needed there.

Setting in Order refers to "a place for everything, and everything in its place" to enable easy acces to needed items.

Shining refers not just to cleaning, but to "being proud" about the way the work area has been organised.

Standardising refers to having standards that everyone has to adhere to. Visual management is an important aspect to facilitate easy understanding of these standards.

Sustaining refers to training of all employees and communication to all employees to ensure 5 S application.

The 5 S's facilitate an excellent performance:

Safety: a well organised and orderly workplace is a safer workplace. 5S activities remove clutter, visual indicators alarm people for hazardous situations.

Improving production efficiency: this 5S program supports a smooth production process in various ways. Searching for tools is eliminated, flow principles are applied, tools storage is done where they are needed most. Location indicators visualise how things have been organised, and non conformaties are seen at once.

Quality improvement: Daily activities like inspection help to keep the production process in the right condition. Defects are prevented, because deviations are spotted before they result into defects.

Controlling your work area: 5 S helps you by:
  • determining what is needed, and where it is needed.
  • defining the appropriate location for tools and other materials.
  • maintaining these standards.

    5S meaning and 5S principles

    The 5S meaning is centered around teamwork and team based decision making. This very often is a change in roles, especially for leadership and leadership style. The following 5S principles are crucial for a successful implementation:
  • Roles and responsibilities must be clear and consistently applied
  • Training will be necessary to ensure all know how to apply 5S techniques and to apply them the same way.
  • The program should be a continuously evolving and growing improvement process.

  • 5S Roles and responsibilities

  • Roles in a 5S program are straightforward. Leaders must set the tone and lead by example
  • Managers and supervisors must commit: provide time for the workforce to develop and implement changes, to provide guidance and support the changes
  • The workforce must embrace 5S principles and practices and help implement the 5S's in their work areas

  • Why Online 5S video training ?

    Universal understanding of the philosophy and techniques is needed to help build a common 5S vocabulary and skill base. The common understanding of the principles will lead to the 5S's being adopted work-area by work-area, where each area will develop unique approaches and methods; anyone working in a specific work area must receive instructions in those work-area-specific methods. Visual factory techniques including color-coding, checklists, and labeling help reinforce the understanding and application. The 5S elearning program provides the possibility to learn whenever you want and wherever you are: it is extremely flexible. It is a fast and effective way to learn 5 S.
