I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW THE JAPANESE 5-S PRACTICES FIT INTO THE QS9000 QUALITY SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS.
ALL REPLIES WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

5-S is part of the Japanese TQM movement, a tool mixed into the philoshopy (Hoshin) just like Kaizen. As far as how this mixes into QS9000, well, I would say that it is organizational culture that blends the two, provided that senior management shares in the philosophy of TQM. In my opinion, most organizations that go down the road of QS9000 are not interested in TQM. They are interested in doing business with the Big 3, who make QS9000 a requirement.

Kevin

Kaizen and 5 S

Hi Marc:
I am happy to say hello to you and the rest of the folks.Has been great to discover (could be by mistake)recently your site and having the opportunity to learn a lot and try to give some help (sometimes not expressing myself properly in English, due I am Mexican). Thanks Marc for giving us your experience in this "free"($$) way.And of course also to all the colleagues that have spent a lot of their time to give us help.
At the end, by participating in this kind of Forums all of us will be better prepared to build a better world (I am quite Don Quijote)

On the other hand I have only one question:

Have you planned to include into the Forums topics like Kaizen, 5 S's, Hoshin and other improvement tools ?

Take care

Qualiman

Note: This is a reply of submitted March 17, topic on Sugestions. It has been posted here because of its relationship with Continuous Improvement an due to lack of response in the other Forum. Thank you.

Qualiman,

I saw your post of the 17th, but was waiting for a response from Marc. Either way, any topic you want to discuss, you could fit it into a couple related forums, which would effectively attract a few of us.

So now that you have been discovered, what would you like to discuss first?

Regards,

Kevin

Hello Marc
What do you think about this;

Create a section for the new ISO 9000:2000 Standard.
For each individual section ie 8.5, 8.5.1 create a thread and let people ask their questions in each section.
You should end up with something like a very useful reference book with information/clarification for each section of the standard.

Regards
