5S is a workplace organization methodology designed to simplify production processes by giving workers from management to the shop floor an understanding of how work is accomplished. This workshop gives participants the knowledge they need to apply the 5S Lean Technique to their workplace. 5S is taught as the foundation of a Lean Enterprise and then applied to a selected area.
Participants will learn the methods of the 5S system and then apply what they have learned in a live situation in their own facility. They will also learn what tools & techniques make up a successful and on-going 5S program.
During the workshop, application activities will occur in a department or workstation in the participants’ facility. The area selected will be transformed into a more efficient work area with sustainment tools in place, and will be a showcase for illustrating 5S principles.
The workshop is designed for 5-12 people.
