Sustain    Not harmful to anyone.     Also translates as do without being told .    Perform regular audits.    Training and discipline.    Training is goal-oriented process. Its resulting feedback is necessary monthly.     Self discipline    To maintain proper order The 5 Steps are as follows:      Sort : Sort out & separate that which is needed & not needed in the area.    Straighten : Arrange items that are needed so that they are ready & easy to use. Clearly identify locations for all items so that anyone can find them & return them once the task is completed.    Shine : Clean the workplace & equipment on a regular basis in order to maintain standards & identify defects.    Standardise : Revisit the first three of the 5S on a frequent basis and confirm the condition of the Gemba using standard procedures.    Sustain : Keep to the rules to maintain the standard & continue to improve every day. Progress Report: Sort , this basically means designating things to its proper places and removing unnecessary items on the area. Set , it is identifying at what group do these items belong to lessen clutter. Shine  means keeping the area, items or surroundings clean and tidy. And Sustain  just simply means maintain, by means of implementing a system to monitor 5S so that it becomes part of the culture.   Benefits of 5S workplace organization 5S relates to workplace organization and forms a solid foundation upon which many organizations base their drive for continuous improvement. It is equally applicable & successful in all sectors helping to achieve high impact results. It is a systematic and methodical approach allowing teams to organize their workplace in the safest and most efficient manner. The discipline to check & repair equipment is included & adopted. The entire process is managed through the use of team generated audit documents, completed on an agreed frequency by responsible owners within the Gemba. Summary    Improved safety    5S becomes a fundamental business measure & key driver for Kaizen    Forms a solid foundation upon which to build continuous improvement    Employees gain a sense of ownership, involvement & responsibility    Reduction in waste –   as defined by Ohno’s seven forms of waste      Improved performance in productivity, quality & morale leads to increased profitability Sort is the first step in 5S, it refers to the sorting of the clutter from the other items within the work area that are actually needed. This stage requires the team to remove all items that clearly do not belong in the working area and only leave those that are required for the processes in question. Set in order is the process of taking the required items that are remaining after the removal of clutter and arranging them in an efficient manner through the use of ergonomic principles and ensuring that eve ry item “has a place and that everything is in its place.”  Shine is the thorough cleaning of the area, tools, machines and other equipment to ensure that everything is returned to a “nearly new” status. This will ensure that any non -conformity stands out; such as an oil leak from a machine onto a bright, newly painted clean floor. Standardize is the process of ensuring that what we have done within the first three stages of 5S become standardized; that is we ensure that we have common standards and ways of working. Standard work is one of the most important principles of Lean manufacturing. Sustain, ensuring that the company continue to continually improve using the previous stages of 5S, maintain housekeeping, and conduct audits and so forth. 5S should become part of the culture of the business and the responsibility of everyone in the organization.  A firm foundation for improvement ã 5S provides a firm foundation on which to build other improvements. ã Stable repeatable processes are predictable.   What is 5S?  : 5S (or 5c) is a systematic approach to workplace organisation and housekeeping. Encouraging ownership and self discipline to sustain and further develop working practices. It aims to : ã Improve safety. ã Remove waste from the workplace. ã Increase quality. ã Provide an environment where continuous improvement is embraced. ãMakes abnormalities immediately visible.   Improved profits:  Reduce costs, streamline labor costs, and improve quality.    More efficient workforce:  Make work easier with standard procedures. What needs to happen, happens.    Safer workplace:  Improve safety by keeping your workplace clean and organized.    Fewer defects:  Reduce errors and defects by making it easier to identify and solve problems.    Better communication:  Ensure your workforce has the information it needs to operate efficiently by creating a visual 5S factory.    Benefits to the company from using the 5S methodology include raising quality, lowering costs, promoting safety, building customer confidence, increasing factory up-time, and lowering repair costs.   What Will 5S Cost? While 5S can be done on any budget, the 5S system requires some resources to become an effective tool. At minimum, there will be some costs related to:    Training employees    Cleaning and organizing the workplace    Getting tools and supplies to support 5S (labeling, demarcation, tagging, and so on)      SORT Sorting means to sort through everything in each work area. Keep only what is necessary. Materials, tools, equipment and supplies that are not frequently used should be moved to a separate, common storage area. Items that are not used should be discarded or recycled. Don't keep things around just because they might be used, someday. 5S Sorting itself involves five steps: 1.   Cleaning 2.   Classifying 3.   Ownership 4.   Red Tagging 5.   Recycling / Reassignment Cleaning   The purpose of sorting is to identify unnecessary items and eliminate them from the workplace. To do this first requires cleaning up the workplace so you can see what you have. Clean up accumulations of dirt, debris, oil, grease, broken tools, excess materials, and scrap. As you do this you'll also be involved with the second step of 5S sorting. Classifying   As you are cleaning up you'll find tools, equipment, materials and supplies. As each item is found, classify it as to the type of object. Scrap metal might go directly to a recycling bin. An item classified as tool might go to a collection area for further identification.
