Many manufacturing facilities have opted to follow the path towards a “5S” workplace as a system to reduce waste and optimize productivity through maintaining an orderly workplace and using visual cues to achieve more consistent operational results. The term refers to five steps – sort, set in order, shine, standardize, and sustain – that are also sometimes known as the 5 pillars of a visual workplace.

No matter how large or small your operation, there are benefits to adopting the 5S philosophy. Come and find out more about this lean process, the technologies available from the college, and the expertise available to assist in making your office, shop floor or warehouse the most efficient it can be.

In this lunch-time session, you will learn about:
• Understanding 5S and how to integrate it into manufacturing and production system.
• A systematic approach to implementing 5S
• Expected saving and improvements
• Sustaining 5S
• Next steps

Who Should Attend:
Business owners, production managers, shop floor supervisors, quality personnel.
