Event Details

This workshop offers participants an opportunity to experience first-hand how a 5S System can reduces waste in a simulated production facility. Participants learn the concepts of the 5S System - Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain - and then apply them to transform a cluttered, disorganized, inefficient production area into an orderly and productive workplace. 

The outcome is more than just a clean work area. The workshop shows participants how a 5S System can increase the value-added output per worker, with improvements in productivity, safety, and quality with savings going right to the bottom line.
