This program shows you an actual Five S (5S) training event at two different manufacturing companies.
Five S (5S) stands for Sort out, Set in order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain.
You will see a Five S Factory Makeover of Symmons Industries in Braintree, MA., and at Affordable Interior Systems in Hudson Massachusetts. Recorded during training classes on Five S (5S), see the kinds of things that were changed to improve productivity and make the work simpler and easier. The clean up teams are first taught the Five S (5S) principles and are then unleashed to go forth and make improvements.
The intended audience for this program is anyone in a manufacturing company that has just started to implement lean or for companies who need to revive their lean efforts.
