Course programme in detail

5S is a practical methodology for organising any given workplace, especially a shared workplace, and more importantly keeping it that way. By application of the simple rule – ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’ it prevents non-value added time in searching for workplace items – a common and frustrating occurrence in most organisations.

The key objectives of 5S are a highly organised, clean, visual, and efficient workplace. 5S begins by deciding what should be kept, where it should be kept, and how it should be stored.

This decision making process is part of a team effort focused on the principles of standardisation incorporating process ownership in each employee.
