Lean Foundations: 5S

5S is considered a fundamental building block for successful lean deployment. It can serve as a strong base to help drive safety in diverse operational settings such as healthcare facilities, manufacturing, aerospace, and process industries. Most lean programs require participants to understand the concepts behind 5S to better ensure continuous improvement and operational excellence. In this course, learn about the fundamentals of 5S with instructor Sam Yankelevitch as he covers the components of 5S (sort, set in order, shine, standardize, and sustain). Understand the true purpose of 5S and how it relates to the concept of flow in lean thinking. Sam shows you the key steps to deploying 5S and explains the relationship between 5S and safety as a motivator to engage people.
