    Planning 5s? First Know Why!

    Planning 5s? First Know Why! by Jamie Flinchbaugh

    he basic principle is that you must know why you want to implement 5S before being concerned about learning how to do it. Most people, when they are asked the purpose of 5S, cite safety, discipline, employee morale, reduced waste of motion and-perhaps the worst reason of all-being tour ready.

    All of this is wrong. The true purpose of 5S is to spot problems quickly.

    Very clear point. The purpose is to help spot problems and correct them. Making it easy to spot problems, and to correct them, will lead to improved safety and efficiency.
