Recommended States

Pre-enrollment is accepted until the minimum student requirement is met. Once enough students have signed up, then we will reach out to process your payment. If minimum enrollment is not attained, we may ask that you consider an alternate date or location. With that in mind, would any of the 4 states be possible for you? Facilities in these states either have a low minimum student requirement, or already have students signing up:

However, if travel is a limitation for you and none of the states above will work, don't worry. We have several options. And if none of those below suit your needs, feel free to contact us and make a request. We will do everything possible to accomodate. A common request we receive is to do on-site training for companies seeking to get several employees trained at the same time.



About 5S Training

In 5S training, students learn Lean Manufacturing's 5 sequential steps to organize their workplace in a way that lowers cost and lays a foundation for more advanced techniques.

Many a self-proclaimed Lean Sensei does what we call "Lean Gone Wrong" (TM) where they want to tape locations for everything including where to put the stapler on your desk. Often, they've lost their way and unfortunately generate a forgotten family of waste called overburden. In these sort of environments, the Lean Leader is feared and employees dread coming to work.

When practiced correctly, 5S generates the intended, healthy, mutually cherishing relationship between employees and management. This is because rather than burdening employees with unnecessary extra work, 5S makes their work easier and therefore in the process of doing so saves the company measurable dollars. A common additional advantage is increased revenue especially where 5S occurs along plant tour routes traveled by existing and prospective customers.

Have you ever been in a US Mint or Federal Bureau of Printing and Engraving Building? We have. It may be the ultimate pinnacle of 5S. We've seen horrific, nightmarishly filthly plants; so stuffed with junk that they were actually dangerous. And, we've seen pristine places as well such as Pfauter Maag Cutting Tools in Rockford, IL (white floors). But for as much criticism as they get, the US Government has them all beat when it comes to manufacturing money. That's the reason for this class' picture which is from inside the US Mint. Those are rolls of copper and nickel immaculately identified and staged for production. So, the picture has 2 meanings: one is that 5S should be about money (profit); not just doing 5S for the sake of 5S or beautification. Anyway, if we train you in Dallas / Fort Worth, let's save time for a tour of paper currency being printed!

So happy to get a professional that knows what they're talking about in here to teach us something useful. Our hands-on measurement system analysis exercise revealed problems with one of the gages most frequently used by Quality.
