“A place for everything and everything in its place.” Learn how to organize your workspace, using the 5S system: Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain.
This Lean method empowers staff to improve and simplify their physical work environment by reducing waste in the forms of excess inventory, time spent searching for the correct items, and unnecessary movement due to improper location of equipment and supplies. Once fully implemented, the 5S process can increase morale, create positive impressions, and increase efficiency and organization.
