THE FIVE S

The 5S Quality Tool is derived from five Japanese terms beginning with the letter “S” that are used to create a suitable workplace for visual control and lean production. The 5S pillars are easy to learn and important to implement:

Seiri: To separate necessary tools, parts, and instructions from unnecessary materials and eliminate unnecessary ones.

Seiton: To carefully organize and identify parts and tools for ease of use.

Seiso: To carry out a cleaning campaign.

Seiketsu: Perform seiri, seiton and seiso daily to keep a workplace in perfect condition.

Shitsuke: To form the habit of always following the first four S.

The Japanese terms are then translated into the English version of the 5S.
