5S Manufacturing Assessment -


What is a 5S Manufacturing Assessment?

The 5S Manufacturing Assessment is a tool to determine whether or not the standards of 5S (Sort, Set-in-Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain) are being met in a physical manufacturing environment. The types of conditions being monitored would include whether there were unused parts in the work space or whether or not people knew where tools and equipment belonged, etc. Once conditions are assessed, the areas that miss the 5S standards would be addressed.
