Course on 5S (16 Hours)
The knowledge of eliminating waste in any processes is a premium business skill. The workplace organization and continuous improvement system of 5S forms the foundation of all waste elimination and operational excellence practices and lean improvement activities.
5S emphasizes on the development of competencies mainly by evolutionary learning. It is based on the idea of kaizen or continuous improvement of making small, incremental changes routinely, sustaining them over a long period of time and improving the performance.
Standing for the five Japanese terms (Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu, Shitsuke), 5S is organized around sorting, setting in order, shining/sweeping things, standardizing, and sustaining good housekeeping practices.
The course aims to transform the participants into quality champions by equipping them with the 5S philosophy and by training them to implement 5S in any workplace or non-work environments.
The participants will know how to identify and eliminate all types of waste quickly and efficiently, reduce cost, improve quality, and meet work obligations as efficiently as possible.
The course can create a new way of thinking with the individual as it ensures that they imbibe quality concepts such as Kaizen, the Japanese business philosophy of continuous improvement of working practices and personal efficiency; and 3Ms of Muda (non-value added or waste), Muri (overburden), and Mura (unevenness) that are fundamental to introduce operational excellence practices such as Six Sigma, Lean Management, and Total Quality Management.
