Spring Cleaning: Motivation for Continuous Improvement

Ready for some 5S spring cleaning?

Recently I was talking to a Quality Manager about 5S. She told me a story that demonstrates how the principles of 5S were evident even during her childhood.

She joked, “You’d think my father invented it.” Turns out her father was highly skilled at taking one look at his daughter’s clothing and instantly noticed if anything was out of place.

In other words, her father had a specific expectation of everything being in place and looking good before his daughter showed her face to the rest of the world. Your facility needs that same kind of quick attention. Your team should be able to tell at a glance if something is out of place.

For instance, take our Tool Shadow Boards. We can create custom boards for your needs or you can choose from three styles for off-the-shelf (Cleaning Station Tool). When it comes to 5S audits, we help you make a sharp impression with less stress. You’ll be confident that you’re ready for any type of inspection with our Tool Shadow Boards.

Get “buttoned up” with The 5S Store! We’ll make sure your tools are well-organized and easy to access.
