In lean production system one of the important factors is to enable every worker to continuously monitor production status ? realization of production plan, number of defects, etc. Proper work and process organization as well as implementation of visual control rules helps to react immediately to any abnormalities, production delays and defects. One of the rules of visual control is to place every tools, parts and work instructions in dedicated, visible location ? ?place for everything and everything in its place? ? which makes production process understandable at the quick view. 5S is here the tool. It consists of 5 steps described with the word beginning with ?S? which refer to proper organization of workplace:

  • Seiri ? selection ? means to separation of needed and unneeded items and removing everything what is unneeded from the workplace
  • Seiton – set In order ? place for everything and everything In its place
  • Seiso ?shine ? clearing workplace and tool, cleaning is also inspection
  • Seiketsu ? standardize – ensure uniform procedures and setups throughout the operation to promote interchangeability
  • Shitsuke ? sustain – Make it a way of life. This means commitment. Ensure disciplined adherence to rules and procedures of 5 S to prevent backsliding. Maintaining the standards
