5S Techniques

Five Disciplines for High Workplace Productivity



5S good housekeeping and workplace organization is a set of basic management principles that are widely adopted in industries today. Also commonly known as "5S System," "5S Method" and "5S Pillars," the cornerstone of 5S is that untidy, cluttered work areas are unproductive. 5S is a powerful improvement process that gets impressive results. In a nutshell, the five principles or pillars are defined as Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. Because these words begin with S, they are commonly referred to as 5S.

The 5S System

It is about how to create a workplace that is clearly organized, free of clutter, arranged so you can easily find things, and sparkling clean--a place where anyone would be proud to work. In addition, 5S principles form the core elements of Lean thinking and a visual workplace and are a fundamental platform for world-class manufacturing.
