Lower Costs and Cycle Times

How it works
Why 5S/ 6S Methodology
We use 5S or 6S to create an efficient and productive work environment that promotes continuous improvement. The method, which originated in Japan, helps organize workplaces, optimize materials, simplify work steps and reduce waste. By applying 5S, workplaces can be cleaner, safer and better organized, resulting in higher quality and efficiency of work and thus cost savings.
The benefits of 5S are many, including improving work processes, reducing error rates and accidents, lowering costs and cycle times, increasing employee satisfaction, and increasing customer loyalty through higher quality. By continuously adhering to the 5S principles, we can achieve continuous improvement to increase our efficiency and competitiveness.
A 5S audit is a review or evaluation of the application of the 5S principles in a work environment. It is used to assess the progress and effectiveness of 5S implementation and identify potential areas for improvement. A 5S audit can be conducted at various levels, including individual workstations, departments, or the entire organization. The audit is typically conducted by an internal or external auditor or audit team that has the necessary knowledge and experience related to the 5S methodology.
A 5S/ 6S audit is designed to drive continuous improvement and ensure that a company's own standards are consistently met. It enables companies to track progress, identify performance gaps and take targeted action to improve. Through regular audits, companies can ensure that standards are consistently applied throughout the organization and that positive impacts on efficiency, productivity and quality are achieved.
