- Here's the challenge, the work area is messy…and it hinders productivity, quality, and work safety.…The assignment?…You have to clean up and organize the area.…In short, a 5S Kaizen is needed.…The invitation list for 5S should include employees…that work in that area or department.…So, invite operators, supervisors,…and process owners to the Kaizen event.…
Of course, plan to conduct the 5S Kaizen at the work area…or department which needs to be organized.…You can look at a sample agenda in the exercise files,…but know that this should be a rather short event.…Two or three hours, maybe.…And this is typically done before…or after work is done for the day.…The event is structured around the five S's.…If you recall…from the prerequisite Lean Six Sigma teams courses,…the five S's stand for Sort, Straighten or Set in Order,…Shine or Sweep, Standardize, and Sustain.…
Like in every workout,…the champion should come and welcome the participants.…The champion sets the tone for the event.…After everyone is oriented…and given a quick overview training on 5S,…
Note: This course does not cover general meeting facilitation. It is specific to planning Work-Outs and Kaizen events. Any prerequisite training in the Operational Excellence and Six Sigma learning paths should be completed beforehand.
