5S_Organisation, cleanliness and sustainable habits

5S is a basic methodology in the Lean system deployment that serves to achieve safe, organised and clean working environments on a permanent basis.  5S reduces non-valuable operations, improves quality and therefore reduces costs.

The main idea is that workers have the tools they need in their work station, and that these are accesible and ready for use so that they can operate with the minimum loss of time and material.

5S is a simple technique that does not require complex technical knowledge or a high level of resources to be implemented, so any company can adopt it into its management model.

5S increases workers efficiency and allows the adoption of a continuous improvement culture wu¡ithi the company.
