Cleaning & Organising 5 S to make your job easier!  1- Sort     2- Set in order    3- Shine    4- Standardize     5- Sustain 

5 S in the 20 Keys programme is not something imposed on you, but something that helps you because these tools make your job simple and easy.  The first step is to build company-wide common understanding and then to steadily climb from level 1 to level 5.  5S is the basis of productivity improvement as it links with the other Keys included in the programme.  During the course of its implementation, you may also see improvement in the other Keys.  This is due to the linkage effect between all the Keys, which in turn is an indication of adequate spreading of 5S throughout the workplace.  5S makes your work easier and more meaningful.
