The 5S method is a tool to control outcomes and make improvements to keep track of the changes implemented.
5S stands for sort, straighten, shine, standardize, and sustain.
It can be used for any process or service.
Sorting is just as it states, organizing and separating what you need and don’t need.
Straighten means to straighten up and arrange items you need for your process or service so they are easily identified.
Shine means to clean up your area and set it up where you can keep it clean.
Standardize means to organize the first three s’s so everything has a place.
Sustain means to keep it going in all of your areas.
The 5 S method improves safety and communication, improves process flow, increases compliance, reduces space requirements, boosts morale, removes non value added steps, and reduces wasted time looking for items.
