5S is a common sense but absent in most of people.
Hello WCSF and all
I have to disagree with the above statment. Just go and visit these worker's home, and you will see that 99% of the cases they practice 5S. On the other hand 5S was practiced by my grandfather. Ex, when I took the rake to work with, and after finishing the work I had to put it back in the place where from I took it, and was designated by my grandfather as the place where it should be. If not, I was attentioned, and sometimes I was kicked in my pants.
So think about, what is missing from the above, from your system, and why ?
So from these: Goals, Roles, Rules, People, Discipline, Supervision
You have the goal as 5S implementation, but what about the other ?
- implement 5S on shop floor, but the operators newly hired re dressing in meeting office as the company didn't built up adequate dressing room for them, (cost reduction, but lead by example ?)
- you want to implement 5S in one area, but workers when going to other areas will se that nothing has a place for it
- you have done some 5S presentation, sent an e-mail that this should work, but you didn't work out the details (roles, rules), and there is lack of supervision.
Good luck, and please do not interpret or uderstood my words in a wrong way, this is just the shop floor voice.
