5S Workplace Organisation

5S is a Lean manufacturing technique which not only helps users to improve their working environment, but also empowers team members to take responsibility in organising and improving the workplace.

The 5 S’s originally come from 5 Japanese words beginning with S - sort, straighten (or set, or shine), sweep, standardise and sustain.
