In this video, I will explain the goals and the best practices of the 5S Methodology. Ready? Go!

1) SORT

# Goal Identify what you need and what you do not need in the work area. Eliminate what you do not need!

# Best Practice Ask the team … Why we have this object here? How often we use it?

2) SET IN ORDER

# Goal Organize and put what is needed in the work area in a way that allows reaching and use easily.

# Best Practice Locate the objects at the “Point of Use.” Use the Visual Management to identify what is the standard.

3) SHINE

# Goal Clean the workplace and keep it clean.

# Best Practice Clean everywhere both Machines and Furniture. Keep the machine cleaned can help to prevent downtime.

4) STANDARDIZE

# Goal Continuously improve the first 3S and the standard.

# Best Practice Change the tools to reach an easier way to clean or eliminate the cause of dirt. Identify who does what.

5) SUSTAIN

# Goal The 5S Methodology has to become a daily habit.

# Best Practice Consolidate the habit, use audit and corrective actions. When it’s needed use the One Point Lesson.

Use the 5S Methodology as the foundation or base of your Lean Journey!
