How Did the 5S Organization System Become Standard at NASA, Boeing, and Hewlett-Packard?
Managers, shift leaders, and employees often hold differing opinions on how products, materials, tools, and merchandise “should be” organized on the warehouse or production floor. Workspaces without a standardized system for organization yield more mistakes, non-essential actions, and dismal workflow. Finding a solution requires restructuring organization around visualized data, which overhauls the human brain’s ability to categorize, identify, and organize data efficiently. Visual imagery transmits messages up to 400% faster and commits concepts to long-term memory with better recall than text data.
The 5S system facilitates a visually driven work environment which eliminates questions, cuts down material handling costs, and ensures what is supposed to happen, does happen. This 5S system handbook provides a detailed, step-by-step guide for one of the most effective and commonly adopted organizational methodologies for commercial workspaces. These tips help you achieve a workspace with minimal waste, fewer human errors, and fewer headaches.
Sort – Don’t Get Zealous
Shine – Define Clean
