I agree with Bill Casti, try Productivity Inc. Phone 1-800-394-6868. We have employed this concept at Newport News Shipbuilding in our shops with great success. The 5S's are Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, and Self Discipline. We used the Shop floor manual 5S forOperators from Productivity. They also have a more detailed book called 5 Pillars for the Visual Workplace. This concept can be used on the shop floor, or administratively, and I use it at home in my house, workshop, and garage.

Good Luck

5s

5S, abbreviated from the Japanese words Seiri, Seiton, Seison, Seiketsu, and Shitsuke, are simple but effective methods to organize the workplace.

The 5S, translated into English are: housekeeping, workplace organization, cleanup, keep cleanliness, and discipline. They can be defined as follows:

Housekeeping.
Separate needed items from unneeded items. Keep only what is immediately necessary item on the shop floor.

Workplace Organization.
Organize the workplace so that needed items can be easily and quickly accessed. A place for everything and everything in its place.

Cleanup.
Sweeping, washing, and cleaning everything around working area immediately.

Cleanliness.
Keep everything clean for a constant state of readiness.

Discipline.
Everyone understands, obeys, and practices the rules when in the plant.
