Lessons from the Road: Sustaining Your 5S Efforts
My 2nd installment of Lessons from the Road, my new column for Industry Week is now available.
This month the topic is Sustaining Your 5S Efforts. One of my early columns for Assembly Magazine titled Planning 5S? First Know Why! 5 years later, it’s still one of the most popular pages on the website. It seems simple, 5S, yet people struggle with it mightily.
The summary points from the column are:
1. Communicate the purpose
2. Audit at the leadership level
3. Periodically change your audits
4. During a crisis, double your audits
5. Escalate problems
6. Eliminate doors and drawers
