work environment.

2. To create a work environment that supports safe working

practices, right first time quality and efficient, productive

Define 5S :-
“An organizational methodology originating in Japan that, when
implemented, reduces the waste of resources and space while increasing
operational efficiency.”

“ The 5S elements, translated into English, are Sort, Set in Order,

Shine, Standardize and Sustain and are applied in some companies'
efforts to achieve "lean manufacturing.”

5S is also the foundation for Continual Improvement (CI) and Lean

5S Terminology :-

1. Sorting :- “ Separating the needed from the not-needed.”

2. Simplifying :- “A place for everything and everything in its place,

clean and ready to use.”

3. Systematic Cleaning :- “Cleaning for inspection.”

4. Standardizing :- “ Developing common methods for consistency.”

5. Sustaining :- “ Holding the gains and improving.”

The Benefits of the 5s System :-
Increases in Productivity : -

1. Reduces lead times thereby improving product delivery times

2. Reduces equipment downtime, maintenance and cycle time
3. Improves daily and shift startup times and reduces changeover time
4. Reduces the amount of time wasted
5. Searching for tools and equipment
Increases in Quality : -

1. Improves quality by reducing the amount of errors/defects.

2. Implements standardization thereby achieving output consistency .
3. The pleasantries of the simplified work environment increases employee moral.

Reduction in cost :-

1. Provides cost-savings by reducing inventory, storage fees and

space requirements
2. Improves safety thereby reducing the cost of worker injuries
3. Reduces the amount of scrap thereby reducing production cost
The Concept of Red Tag & its area :-
“ The red tag system is simply a communication tool used to identify items
that a person has flagged for removal from a work area. While the tagging
is most frequently done during kaizen events, it can be done at any time.”

Red Tags:-
1. Red tags come in a wide range of
shapes and sizes, but the most
commercially available red tags will
have a wire or elastic loop on
them to attach to the item.

2. The information you need on the red

tat, at a minimum, includes the
name of the tagger, the reason it was
tagged, and the date it will be

3. More information may also be

required, especially if the item is to be
to a red tag area. The additional
information helps to catalog or sort
the equipment.
Red Tag Area:-

1. The red tag area is simply a storage location for red tagged items that is
segregated from the production areas.
2. It must be kept neat and orderly so the equipment available in it can be
quickly surveyed by anyone in need.
3. When a red tag area is well maintained, improvement teams will be more
likely to make use of the red tag area, as they will have a better chance of
finding something they need
The Red Tag Technique:-

The Red Tag Technique involves the following steps:-

1. Establish the rules for distinguishing between what is needed and what is not.

2. Identify needed and unneeded items and attach Red Tags to all potentially
unneeded items.
3. Write the specific reason for Red Tagging and sign and date each tag.

4. Remove Red Tag items and temporarily store them in an identified

holding area.
5. Sort through the Red Tag items; dispose of those which are truly superfluous.
Other items can be eliminated at an agreed interval when it is clear that
they have no use.
6. Ensure that all stakeholders agree.

Consider ways to improve the workplace so that unnecessary items do not accumulate.
Explain Each ‘S’ in detail for better understanding of 5S concept:-

Definition :-
"Sorting" means to sort through everything in each work area.
Keep only what is necessary.
Materials, tools, equipment and supplies that are not frequently used
should be moved to a separate, common storage area.
Items that are not used should be discarded or recycled.
Don't keep things around just because they might be used, someday.

Why we do?
1. Removes waste.
2. Safer work area.
3. Gains space.
4. Easier to visualize the process.

How to do?
1. Start in one area, then sort through everything.
2. Discuss removal of items with all persons involved.
3. Use decontamination/ environmental/safety procedures.
4. Items that cannot be removed immediately should be red tagged
Explain Each ‘S’ in detail for better understanding of 5S concept:-

Set in Order:-
Definition :-
The key principle in "5S Set In Order" is: a place for everything and everything in
its place, with everything properly identified , labeled & ready for use.
Arrange workplace for safety and efficiency:-

1. Identify key equipment and supplies

2. Determine location for each item
3. Outline locations and zones
4. Develop shadow boards, label items
5. Document layout, equipment, supplies

Why we do?
1. Visually shows what is required or is out of place.
2. More efficient to find items/ documents (silhouettes/ labels).
3. Saves time, not having to search for items.
4. Shorter travel distances.
How to do?
1. Keep things used together -kept together.
2. Use labels, tape, floor markings, signs, shadow outlines.
3. Sharable items keep at central location (eliminate excess)
Explain Each ‘S’ in detail for better understanding of 5S concept:-

Definition :-
“To keep your area clean on a continuing basis.”

Why we do?
1. A clean workplace is indicative of a quality product and process.
2. Dust and dirt cause product contamination & potential health hazards.
3. A clean workplace helps to identify abnormal conditions.

How to do?
Use a plant layout as a visual to identify individual responsibilities for Cleaning-
eliminates “no man’s land.”
Explain Each ‘S’ in detail for better understanding of 5S concept:-

Definition :-
“To maintain the workplace at a level which uncovers and makes problems obvious.
To constantly improve our plant by continuous assessment & actions.”

Why we do?
To build 5S’s into our every day process to maintain “neat” and “clean”.

How to do?

1. Build into everyday routines and checklists.

2. Develop schedules and checklists.
Explain Each ‘S’ in detail for better understanding of 5S concept:-

Definition :-
On-going training and maintaining the established 5S standards.

To maintain our discipline, we need to practice and repeat until it becomes a way of life.

Why we do?

To sustain sorting, storage and shining activities every day.

How to do?
1. Good habits are hard to break.
2. Commitment and discipline toward housekeeping is essential in taking
the first step in being World Class.

5S Focusing Tools:-
1. “Red Tag ” Technique
2. Before & After photographs
3. Improve Area by Area, each one totally
4. Clear Responsibilities
5. Daily Cross Department Tours
6. Schedule ALL Critical Customers to Visit
7. Regular Assessment.
