5S is an approach to organize, order, clean, standardize and continuously improve a work area. 5S is not just about housekeeping. It is one of the efficiently-working tools of Lean Manufacturing.
The program gets its name from five activities beginning with the letter S, which were derived from five Japanese words. The words are Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu, and Shitsuke, which when translated mean Sort, Set in Order, Shining, Standardize, and Sustain, respectively.
5S is a basic foundation of Lean Manufacturing systems. It is a tool for cleaning, sorting, organizing and providing the necessary groundwork for workplace improvement. This research effort dealt with the implementation of 5S methodology in the Graphic Communications Management laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
A detailed application of the 5S system is given. It will impact the instructors and students of Graphic Communications Management program that work within the selected laboratory.
