5S Methodology Training is creating, maintaining and improving a clean and orderly workplace that exposes waste and errors. It will also help identify unplanned levels of inventory, inadequate work processes, wasted time and equipment inefficiencies.With the ever changing economic climate, many organizations are periodically adjusting their resources to align with business strategy. This often results in the need to achieve more work with fewer resources. In order to remain successful, businesses must become more efficient, reduce waste and thereby reduce cost. We must find ways to do what we are currently doing in less time and at a lower cost.

5S Methodology is a great place to start on your continuous improvement initiative. While it promotes an action-oriented approach to change and allows everyone in the organization to get involved. It also provides input with improving their workplace.The 5S Principles are very effective at identifying and eliminating waste and increasing efficiency. There is a lot of information about 5S and how it came to be. The popular belief is that the Japanese invented the 5S Methodology because the letter “S” stands for five Japanese words, that when translated to roman script, start with the letter “S”. In actuality, the principles within 5S were being utilized decades before by Mr. Henry Ford. It has been reported that prior to 1920, Mr. Ford was using CANDO in his manufacturing processes.
