5S Methodology Training

5S Methodology Training

Course Description

5S Methodology Training creates, maintains, and improves a clean and orderly workplace that exposes waste and errors. It will also help identify unplanned levels of inventory, inefficient work processes, wasted time, and equipment inefficiencies. Many organizations periodically adjust their resources to align with business strategy with the ever-changing economic climate. These factors often result in the need to achieve more work with fewer resources. To remain successful in running your business, we should become more efficient, reduce waste, and reduce cost. We must find ways to do what we are currently doing in less time and at a lower price.

5S Methodology is a great place to start on your continuous improvement initiative. At the same time, it promotes an action-oriented approach to change and allows everyone to get involved. It also provides input with improving their workplace. The 5S Principles effectively identify and eliminate waste and increase efficiency. There is a lot of information about 5S and how it came to be. The popular belief is that the Japanese invented the 5S Methodology because “S” stands for five Japanese words. When translated to Roman script, it starts with the letter “S.” In actuality, the principles within 5S were being utilized decades before by Mr. Henry Ford. The report states that before 1920, Mr. Ford was using CANDO in his manufacturing processes.

This dynamic training course is available in-house and online throughout the Philippines, including Manila.
