The Fifth 'S' - Sustaining 5S

The Fifth 'S' - Sustaining 5S

5S"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." - Jim Rohn

Anyone who has implemented 5S (or tried to) knows the inherent difficulty of making the process of 5S into a habit.  There is even some difference of opinion on what "Sustain" means: is it just maintaining the improvements of the other four S's, or does it involve spreading what we have learned by teaching others, or does it mean re-applying the 5S process to our work area over and over?

With all those variations to Sustain, how do we ensure that those good habits are actually formed and followed through?

Of course, how you execute the first four S's will impact your ability to Sustain, so we will inevitably be talking about good / better / best ways to implement all 5 of the S's.

Join your peers who have been frustrated (or hopefully succeeded!) with their company's 5S efforts. We may discuss such points as:
  • How long to make 5S a habit?
  • Is 5S a tool, or a change in the culture?
  • How do you re-engage people in 5S to achieve good habits when their work area is fairly clean
  • How do you measure 5S impact on productivity?
  • How do you measure "sustain"?
