  3. 3. Seven Types of Waste <ul><li>Over Production </li></ul><ul><li>Correction - time and effort wasted </li></ul><ul><li>Inventory - monies blocked </li></ul><ul><li>Processing - each one does the same process differently </li></ul><ul><li>Motion - improper sequencing / assembly line </li></ul><ul><li>Conveyance - time to travel </li></ul><ul><li>Waiting - punctuality not being adhered to </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The effective organization uses appropriate tools to identify and eliminate all seven types of waste. </li></ul><ul><li>The truly effective organization is one that teaches its employees to be waste-conscious in all they do. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Five “Ss’ Introduction <ul><li>Some of the question normally asked regarding workplace organizations are : </li></ul><ul><li>“ How can I improve efficiency, work organization, quality, safety and house-keeping and protect my investment at the same time.” </li></ul><ul><li>Japanese philosophy of 5S responses very well to the above questions, Based on Japanese words that begin with “S”, the 5S philosophy focuses on effective work place organization and standardize work procedure. The 5S simplifies work environment, reduces waste and non-value activity while improving quality, efficiency and safety. </li></ul>
  6. 6. THE FIVE ‘Ss’ <ul><li>Seiri - Sort (re-categorize) </li></ul><ul><li>Seiton - Set in order (re-structure) </li></ul><ul><li>Seiso - Shine (Practice) </li></ul><ul><li>Seiketsu - Standardize (SOPs) </li></ul><ul><li>Shitsuke - Sustain (Active Supervision) </li></ul>
  7. 7. THE FIVE ‘Ss’ – Conceptual Framework <ul><li>First S - Seiri = Sort </li></ul><ul><li>First S focuses on eliminating unnecessary items from the work </li></ul><ul><li>It is an excellent way to set up valuable floor space and eliminate such things as broken tools, obsolete jigs and fixtures, scrap and excess raw material. </li></ul><ul><li>It involves to organize tools and components in such a way to ensure safety and reduce walk and wait time process. </li></ul>
  8. 8. THE FIVE ‘Ss’ – Conceptual Framework <ul><li>Second S - Seiton = Set in order </li></ul><ul><li>Second S focuses on efficient and effective storage methods </li></ul><ul><li>Set in order may involve : painting floors, outlining work areas and location, shadow boards, and modular selving and cabinets. </li></ul>
  9. 9. THE FIVE ‘Ss’ – Conceptual Framework <ul><li>Third S - Seiso = Shine </li></ul><ul><li>Third S focuses thoroughly cleaning the work areas after the clutter and junk that has been logging the work area have been eliminated and identify and locate the necessary items. </li></ul><ul><li>Level all items for semi-permanent storage. </li></ul><ul><li>Daily follow up cleaning is necessary in order to sustain this improvement. </li></ul><ul><li>Workers take pride in a clean and clutter free work area. </li></ul><ul><li>This step helps create ownership in equipment and facility. They also begin to notice changes in equipment and facility location such as air, oil, and coolant, repeat contamination and vibration, broken, fatigue, breakage and misalignment. </li></ul><ul><li>These changes, if left unattended could add to loss of production. </li></ul><ul><li>This is also referred as sweeping and washing. </li></ul>
  10. 10. THE FIVE ‘Ss’ – Conceptual Framework <ul><li>Fourth S - Seiketsu = Standardize </li></ul><ul><li>Fourth S focuses on standardizing the best practices in the work area. </li></ul><ul><li>Employees participate in the development of such standards. They are valuable but often overlooked information regarding their work. </li></ul>
  11. 11. THE FIVE ‘Ss’ – Conceptual Framework <ul><li>Fifth S - Shitsuke = Sustain </li></ul><ul><li>This is the most difficult “S” to implement and achieve. </li></ul><ul><li>It focuses on defining few status quo and standard of work place organization. </li></ul><ul><li>Human nature is to resist change. The tendency of the employees is to return to the status quo and comfort zone of the “Old Way” of doing things. </li></ul>
  12. 12. IMPACT <ul><li>Once fully implemented, the 5S process can increase morale, create positive impressions on customers, and increase efficiency. Not only employees feel better about where they work, the effect of continuous improvement can lead into reduce waste, better quality and faster lead times. All these make the organization more profitable and competitive into the market place. </li></ul>
  13. 13. CONCLUSION <ul><li>There are no short cuts to “world Class”. Bringing the tools of an effective enterprise into an organization requires commitment and culture change. There is no more powerful tool in an organization than the excitement of its employees. The Five S process requires that you think in a new way above what you do at work everyday. </li></ul>
