Sustaining Success with 5S Practices

Implementing a Practice Instead of a Program.

As with many new organizational initiatives, 5S can be rolled out by starting small and building on early success. Target an “island of excellence”—one department, one work process, one location in your facility. Form an implementation team made up of laborers, supervisors and managers. Conduct a needs assessment for the pilot target; evaluate the work environment, work conditions and work flow; observe current work behaviors, survey workers about their attitudes.
