5S is the Foundation of any Lean Program

The 5S methodology is a framework that provides an outline for approaching organization that can truly transform a workplace. 5S is a systematic approach relying on visual management that consists of five steps: Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. The purpose of 5S is often boiled down to just organization, but it is truly a foundational element of Lean manufacturing. When implemented correctly, 5S helps to eliminate waste in the facility and create work spaces that are easier and more efficient to work in.
