5S and Color Coding

5S was developed in Japan and was identified as one of the techniques that enabled Just in Time manufacturing. 5S workplace organization method uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri (classification), seiton (order), seisō (cleaning), seiketsu (standardization), and shitsuke (discipline).

5 steps in the 5S system:
1. Sort: Retain only the items and procedures necessary to do the job.
2. Straighten: Ensure each item is kept in a designated place.
3. Shine: Maintain clean and organized spaces.
4. Standardize: Define standards for workspaces and procedures.
5. Sustain: Keep up with established standards and procedures.

The 5S visual management system makes it easy to ensure your workplace is more organized, efficient, productive and safer. The 5S system first analyzes your workspace and removes unnecessary items. From there, it organizes essential items and efficiently cleans and maintains the workspace. Best of all, these steps quickly become part of your organization’s daily routine. Visual cues are a vital part of a successful 5S program. They help you communicate information to employees using color-coding, labeling and floor markings. Floor markings help employees recognize work cell boundaries, areas requiring special caution and locations for public spaces, such as restrooms, break rooms and recycling bins. You can get started with the 5S system today—and begin transforming your workplace.
