The 5S’s are simple but effective methods to organise the workplace. The methodology does however, go beyond this simple concept, and is concerned with making orderly and standardized operations the norm, rather than the exception. Posters bearing the 5S terms can be found on the walls of Japanese plants, and are a visual aid to organisational management.
SeiriSort This requires the classifying of items into two categories, necessary and unnecessary, and disregarding or removing the latter. SeitonStraighten Once Seiri has been carried out Seiton is implemented to classify by use, and arrange items to minimise search time and effort. The items left should have a designated area, with specified maximum levels of inventory for that area. SeisonShine Seison means cleaning the working environment. It can help in the spotting of potential problems as well as reducing the risk of fire/injury by cleaning away the potential causes of accidents.
Seiketsu Systematise Seiketsu means keeping one's person clean, by such means as wearing proper working clothes, safety glasses, gloves and shoes, as well as maintaining a clean healthy working environment. It can also be viewed as the continuation of the work carried out in Seiri, Seiton, and Seison. Shitsuke Sustain ◦ Shitsuke means self-discipline. The 5 S‘s may be viewed as a philosophy, with employees following established and agreed upon rules at each step. By the time they arrive at Shitsuke they will have developed the discipline to follow the 5 S‘s in their daily work.
