Panel 5S

A place for each tool and tool in its place!

The 5S panels are large hooked panels on which the silhouettes of the tools you use in the company are drawn to scale. Each tool therefore has a precise storage space and employees can quickly find the tool they are looking for.   5S panels aim at continuous improvement of the tasks performed in the companies.

The application of 5S serves several purposes:

  •  Lighten the workspace of what is useless
  •  Organize the workspace efficiently
  •  Improve the state of cleanliness of the premises
  •  Prevent the appearance of dirt and mess
  •  Encourage self-discipline efforts

The entire system also allows   :

  • Improve working conditions and staff morale
  •  Reduce time and energy costs
  • To reduce the risk of accidents and / or sanitary
  • Improve the quality of production

Origin of the 5S method

The method of   5S   is a technique of   management   aimed at the continuous improvement of the tasks carried out in the enterprises.

It derives its name from the first letter of each of five operations constituting so many slogans or simple principles   :

Seiri   (整理,   tidy up )   :   delete the useless

Seiton   (整頓,   order )   :   situate things

seiso   (清掃,   cleaning )   :   (make) twinkle

Seiketsu   (清潔,   clean )   :   standardize the rules

Shitsuke   (躾,   education )   :   follow and progress

This approach is sometimes translated into French by the word   ORDER   which means   :

O rdonner

R anger

D dust,   To discover anomalies

R evident endre

Be rigorous
