Event Details

5S System – The Visual Workplace

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 increased the value-added output per worker, with improvements in productivity, safety and quality with savings going right to the bottom-line.

Credits: Workshop qualifies for 0.8 CEUs (continuing education units) through Purdue University. There is a $15 processing fee to obtain your CEU transcript record. If you are interested in obtaining CEUs, you can prepay at registration or request an application form at the end of the session.
