For decades, 5S practitioners have struggled with exactly how to implement and sustain a 5S program in their workplaces. While there are many books available on the organization methods suggested by 5S, few provide easy-to-understand, step-by-step guidance on how to set up and sustain successful 5S implementations. 5S Made Easy fills this need.Written by an expert whose focus for the last decade has been nothing but 5S, the book supplies in-depth guidance on how to implement and sustain each of the 5S pillars-sort, set in order, shine, standardize, and sustain.The book uses an easy-to-follow format that was designed for use during 5S events. It provides color images of real-world 5S solutions, including before and after pictures from the field. It also supplies readers with online access to all of the forms and documents needed for an effective 5S program. All the forms and documents are provided in an easily editable format to fit any operation.
