5S from its very beginning is focused on minimizing or removing nonvalue articles and processes by developing standard methods for doing the daily work. A robust 5S program enhances quality, efficiency, workflow, and workplace safety. Some of the benefits of 5S implementation are:
No need to spend time in finding out the missing tools due to unorganized work-space.
Reduces the workflow movement or walking to do repetitive tasks.
Enhances floor safety by taking off bending, stretching, and tripping hazards.
Enhances the reliability of equipment and machines.
Each step is standardized for easier implementation and easy to follow processes for new bees.
Frees the cluttered space and thus offers more floor space.
Embeds a culture of continuous improvement within the organization.
