5S BASIC TRAINING : 5S BASIC TRAINING What is 5S and why do we want to do it? Slide 2: What is 5S and why do we want to do it? 5S is short for: Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain
5S represents 5 disciplines for maintaining a visual workplace (visual controls and information systems).
These are foundational to Kaizen (continuous improvement) and a manufacturing strategy based "Lean Manufacturing" (waste removing) concepts.
5S is one of the activities that will help ensure our company’s survival. 5S : 5S 1. Sort - All unneeded tools, parts and supplies are removed from the area
2. Set in Order - A place for everything and everything is in its place
3. Shine - The area is cleaned as the work is performed
4. Standardize - Cleaning and identification methods are consistently applied
5. Sustain - 5S is a habit and is continually improved
Also - Work areas are safe and free of hazardous or dangerous conditions Some New Words : Some New Words Red Tag-Process for tagging, removing and disposing of items not needed in the work area. Lean Manufacturing-concepts that seek continuous improvement by removing waste in processes
Some Japanese words you need to know: Kaizen-(pronounced “ki zen”) - improvement
Kaizen Event and 5S Event-Planned improvements to a
specific area or process (usually take 3 to 5 days).
5S Events focus on making 5S improvements.
Muda-(pronounced “moo da”) - waste
Gemba-(pronounced “gim ba”) - workplace New Words - Continued : New Words - Continued Kanban-(pronounced “kon bon”) - Pull type inventory control system. Items are only produced to meet customer needs. The request to produce more is signaled from an upstream operation and/or customer orders.
Value Stream Map - A diagram of all processes needed to make and deliver the product to the customer.
OTHER PROBLEM SOLVING TOOLS
TOC-Short for Theory of Constraints. Problem solving and constraint management methods. Use the 5 Step form of TOC to solve problems that you will encounter in your continuous improvement efforts. Some 5S Examples : Some 5S Examples Before 5S After 5S - Cleaned, organized and drawers labeled (less time and frustration hunting) 5S Examples - Sort, Set in Order : 5S Examples - Sort, Set in Order See the difference?
1. Sort - All unneeded tools, parts and supplies are removed from the area
2. Set in Order - A place for everything and everything is in its place 5S Examples - Shine : 5S Examples - Shine 3. Shine - The area is cleaned as the work is performed (best) and\or there is a routine to keep the work area clean. 5S Examples - Standardize : 5S Examples - Standardize 4. Standardize - Cleaning and identification methods are consistently applied Departments have weekly 5S tours
Every job has duties that use Sort, Set in Order and Shine
We all have common duties to do our part to keep all areas of the plant in shape - breakroom, restrooms, locker area, parking lot, etc 5S Examples - Sustain : 5S Examples - Sustain 5. Sustain - 5S is a habit and is continually improved
5S is a simple concept with powerful results.
You will get additional information on 5S so that you will be well equipped.
Our experience is that the more we do 5S the better the work environment becomes: cleaner, safer, more organized, the work is easier, less confusion and less stress.
Use the 5S (work\home\play) - The more you use it the easier it becomes and life just gets better and better. The Good, Bad and the Ugly : The Good, Bad and the Ugly First the Bad and the Ugly - Life Without 5S The Good : The Good What is Waste (Muda)? : What is Waste (Muda)? Some of the main forms of waste are:
Waiting for materials, machines, or instruction
Transportation or movement
Inefficient machine processing and/or operation
Part or line changeover or machine setup
Miscommunication or inadequate instruction Improvement (Kaizen) Principles : Improvement (Kaizen) Principles Get rid of all old (false) assumptions. Don't look for excuses, look for ways to make it happen . . Don't worry about being perfect - even if you only get it half right “start NOW”! It does not cost money to do KAIZEN. If something is wrong “Fix it NOW”. Good ideas flow when the going gets tough. Ask "WHY" five times - get to the root cause. Look for wisdom from Ten people rather than one. Never stop doing KAIZEN. Summary : Summary 5-S is for you.
Clean-up and organize your work area every day so that each new day is easier and safer than the day before
Share your input with your leaders so that the tools you need will be available to you, increasing your efficiency.
Volunteer to help with the 5S tours and 5S events.
Take a good look around...Imagine zero waste/zero confusion!
