with Step by Step Implementation.
At first glance, the improvement techniques within the Lean philosophy appear to provide a solution to many types of production-related issues. A powerful and effective improvement philosophy, Lean can prevent company failure or launch an organization into world-class operational excellence.
It does not matter the industry you work in, the product you produce, and even the processes your company uses to transform something to a finished good, the problems and opportunities you face are the same as those of everyone else. Your company is not “different” or an exception. You, as a Lean practitioner, desire a smoother-running facility, reduced lead times, more capacity, improved productivity, flexible processes, usable floor space, reduced inventory, and so on. Organizations implement Lean to make localized improvements or they can use Lean to transform the entire culture of the business.
Regardless of your aspirations and goals for Lean, you and many other companies face another similar situation: getting out of what I call boardroom Lean and moving toward implementation.
1. rolling your sleeves up, getting dirty, and making change. True change comes on the production floor, in the maintenance shop, and in all the other areas of the organization and by implementing the concepts of Lean.
2. Companies often become stuck in endless cycles of training and planning, with no implementation ever happening. This Training will guide you through implementation and is written for the pure Lean practitioner look¬ing for a training tool and a guideline that can be used in the work area while improvements are conducted.
3. There is no book, manual, or reference guide that provides color images and detailed step-by-step guidelines on how to properly implement 5S (Sort, Set in Order, Scrub, Standardize, Sustain) and the visual workplace.
4. The implementation of 5S is a manually intensive action, and con¬ducting 5S projects properly takes experience and direction.
5. The 5S training is no a traditional Training, as you can probably get. It is not intended to learn only, It guides you to properly implement and utilize the right way.
Little or no time is wasted on high-level theory, although an introductory portion is dedicated to the 8 Wastes and Lean metrics. An understanding of wastes and metrics is needed to fully benefit from this Training. This Training is not with high-level theory or business strategies lack value; they are highly valuable. This training is for implementation, so it will not contain filler information.
Chapter 1 gets you started right away and outlines how to use the Sort process in a work area. You will see how to properly conduct the red tag process and create categories for the items that need to be removed. Chapter 1 also gives you recommendations on the final disposition of these unneeded items so they truly leave the company.
Chapter 2 is a longer chapter as it covers the Set-in-Order phase of a 5S implementation. Generally, the most labor intensive of the processes, you will find multiple images of shadow boards, floor markings, location designations, and shelf organization. Different examples are provided of Set in Order to enhance your upcoming implementation. Each implementation is different, and seeing diverse examples will help you decide how you will apply the concept at your organization.
Chapters 3 and 4 are relatively shorter in comparison to Chapter 2. The Scrub phase of 5S is explained not only by illustrating the importance of cleanliness during a 5S implementation but also by showing how to prepare the work area ahead of time. Chapter 4 outlines the concept of Standardization by explaining the importance of consistency in each implementation you conduct. Tape or paint colors, as examples, can have certain definitions, and these meanings should be standard across the company. By following a standard visual workplace guideline, implementation will become smoother and easier to lead as everyone is following the same general guideline.
The importance of Sustaining is illustrated in Chapter 5 through real examples of end-of-day reset procedures, daily walk-throughs, 5S audits, and 5S tracking systems. These systems are critical for maintaining performance gains achieved after a 5S implementation and allow a foundation for continuous improvement.
As a bonus, Chapter 6 is a step-by-step guideline for creating and constructing a shadow board. This great tool shows you the 10 steps necessary for a 5S-compliant shadow board for tools and supplies. Multiple examples are given throughout this manual, and I provide more in
Remember that this is an implementation guide. It is intended to be a hands-on guideline for your kaizen events. 5S is a powerful improvement tool within Lean; this manual will help you conduct effective and worthwhile implementations.
