I feel that 5S is a building block just like anything else in achieving lean. There are a set of steps that needs to be achieved in order to reach that level. 5S is a foundation for lean and 5S has its own foundation built in its process.
5S is well defined and structured its all starts with the 1S "Sort" and it mentions that you can only start the next S "Set In Order" only with the items that you have sorted necessary, building on the previous step. This goes on to the 5th S "Sustain".
In my opinion if a company has a problem with sustaining the 5S program it could be the cause of a problem with its foundation, a simple tool like the 5 why's can lead us to the root cause of the problem. It would seems to me that Standardizing can be a little harder as without it you wouldn't be able to sustain the program.
I hear this so often and it's no doubt true. Some folks suggest Sustain is the most difficult of the 5 however others think that Standardization is more difficult. If you had to choose one, which would you choose as the most challenging?
Thanks for the contribution.
5S Best Practices
The first 3 S's are easy to explain and manage however standardize and sustain play a key role in the continuity of the 5S program in a company.
