Full course description

Time: 1 hour, 36 minutes
Michael McCarthy, M.Ed.

Course Description: Describes five steps (5S) to beginning Lean in one’s part of the organization and explains why 5S works from a behavioral science perspective. Explains that the acronym 5S derives from the Japanese words for each step and the resulting clean, orderly workplace with labeled tools, posted work instructions and a Kanban flow (in and out sequence).  Discusses how the 5S ideal would be a workplace where a new hire could follow the posted work instructions and work sequence flow with minimal training and that anything wrong or out of place would be noticeable immediately and lead to immediate correction (visual management).  Explains that the status of work completion can be assessed at a glance (flow) and describes the behavioral processes involved in these Lean concepts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the purpose (intended outcome) for each step of the 5S
  • Describe how to complete each step
  • Describe an example and nonexample of each 5S step in use
  • Describe how one will know each 5S step worked as intended (success)
  • List the benefits of a 5S-d workplace
