About 5S Training

In 5S training, Jackson 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!

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt in a high-tech manufacturing company where formal continuous improvement was a new concept. I was impressed with his ability to translate the concepts and skills needed to start down the path of the discipline in a way that was not only accessible to the employees, but excited them and moved many of them into being active, positive participants. I saw an immediate improvement in overall engagement, which helped in areas well beyond the tactical and functional areas included in the improvement project, itself.
