Course Overview

5S, also known as 5C or CANDO is concerned with the elimination of the '7 wastes' by the introduction of world class workplace organisation, visual management and a culture of ownership and accountability. 5S is also sometimes known as 6S where the sixth S stands for Safety. 5S can increase both productivity and morale when implemented correctly.

 

What are the 7 Wastes?

By reviewing just 7 wastes in our business, we can account for over 80% of the waste we are likely to find in both an office and factory environment. These are factors which influence the effectiveness with which we carry out our daily tasks. 5S is a set of tools which form the bedrock of a continuous improvement culture – hence a good place to start for an organisation in the process of adopting a lean culture.

This one day 5S training course is ideally suited to personnel from all disciplines in a manufacturing environment. This is a highly interactive, practical course where delegates get the opportunity to manufacture 'real' products during the workshop in both a PRE-5S and a POST-5S environment to demonstrate what can be achieved by this lean tool.

 

What you will learn?

At the conclusion of the 5S training course each delegate will be able to:

  • Identify the 7 Wastes in their own working environment
  • Understand the benefits of working in a 'clutter' free environment
  • Recognise the usefulness of signage, colour and location as part of a visual management programme
  • Design and implement a 5S audit programme
  • Provide the right conditions for 5S 'sustainability'
  • Generate a structured programme to eliminate waste
