One of the simplest ways for organizations to improve operational performance is to conduct a 5S project. It is a “quick hitting” common sense approach that allows operations to immediately implement process enhancing solutions with easy buy-in from employees.
Because of this, it is a great tool for helping organizations transform into a Lean Enterprise.
5S techniques enable organizations to sort out unnecessary items including equipment, fixtures and documentation. However, 5S is much more than industrial housekeeping. Valuable by-products of 5S programs include an organized work environment, increased workspace, improved productivity, reduced supply costs and a more standardized work environment.
Argent can help your organization implement a 5S program today that will lay the foundation for operational improvement for the future.
