5S For The Factory Seminar


This one-day workshop leads the students through the steps in developing and implementing a 5S program. 5S is the starting point of any on-the-floor improvement activity and the key to successful change.

How the Program Works

This program selects one of your existing manufacturing areas and uses it to illustrate the steps in the 5S process. A video recording is made of the area and then is evaluated by the students, including identifying changes that can be made to achieve manufacturing improvements.
