Five S Factory Makeover DVD
Part of the Shingo Prize-winning Manufacturing Insights video series, this program shows you an actual Five S (5S) training event at two different manufacturing companies.
Five S stands for Sort out, Set in order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain.
You will see a Five S Factory Makeover of Symmons Industries in Braintree, MA., and at Affordable Interior Systems in Hudson Massachusetts. Recorded during training classes on Five S, see the kinds of things that were changed to improve productivity and make the work simpler and easier. The clean up teams are first taught the Five S principles and are then unleashed to go forth and make improvements.
The intended audience for this program is anyone in a manufacturing company that has just started to implement lean or for companies who need to revive their lean efforts.
