The application of the 5’S methodology ensures that work areas are kept systematically clean and tidy. It is a very important tool if you want to maintain and secure methods and processes.
5S is a method whose principle is as follows: «A place for every thing and every thing in its place».
The five stages in the process are:
• 1S – Seiri: Separate the necessary from the unnecessary. Having what you need.
• 2S – Seiton: Sort, define the best place for each thing. Let every thing have its place.
• 3S – Seiso: Cleaning of zones and elements. To be effective you have to be clean and clean.
• 4S – Seiketsu: Create and set cleaning standards. Standardize the methods, each object with its marked place.
• 5S – Shitsuke:Educate and communicate to support the first four in the long term. Keep getting better.
The lack of standardization in the location and cleanliness of the different jobs has the consequence: 1-Accidentability avoidable and 2-Unproductivity.
With this methodology we will reduce both the accidentability and unproductive times that do not add value. The goal is to achieve a team formed and involved in improvement.
From FAYMM we strive every day within our industrial field, to carry out this methodology being our quality department responsible for its implementation, training our work teams to carry out the appropriate corrective actions.
Giving rise to an action plan, which will generate greater cleanliness and ergonomics for each work cell. Gaining in safety, quality, spaces, and also reducing costs and operations without added value.
