What is the 5S's?

Instituting the 5Sís is usually one of the first step companies take in implementing Lean Six Sigma. The 5Sís (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain) are rough translations from the original Japanese terms referring to a process to optimize workplace organization. The premise for the 5S's is that a lot of improvements and efficiencies can be made by having a clean, organized and efficient workplace.
