Event Description


The webinar will cover the history of 5S, as depicted in the language of money, to help gain buy-in by organizational decision makers. Several aspects of what we now call 5S were clearly visible at the Ford Motor Company during the first part of the 20th century, where they played a central role in the organization's unprecedented world-class performance. Henry Ford also introduced safety techniques such as what we now call lockout-tagout and error proofing; his goal was to make accidents physically impossible as opposed to relying on worker vigilance. "Can't rather than don't" means, for example, that the worker can't put his or her hand in the machinery as opposed to having to remember to not do it.


5S is a prerequisite for many lean manufacturing activities, and an effective visual workplace in which any observer (such as a worker) can determine the status of a process or activity by simply looking at it. As an example, andon lights announce whether a workstation is available or down for maintenance. Shadow boards, an aspect of Arranging, make the presence or absence of specific tools immediately obvious. A clean workplace similarly makes leaking fluids or dropped parts obvious. All these features of 5S support quality, continuity of operations, and safety.


  • Many aspects of 5S date back to the 19th century (if not before), and have delivered proven results in the language of money as demonstrated at the Ford Motor Company and also by Frederick Winslow Taylor, the father of scientific management.


5S (Clearing Up, Arranging, Neatness, Discipline, Ongoing Improvement) is a workplace organization process that supports lean manufacturing aspects such as single-minute exchange of die (SMED) and the visual workplace. It also supports safety, which is sometimes regarded as the 6th S, by removing clutter from the workplace. Many safety techniques are very easy to understand and apply to the shop floor, and they eliminate the root causes of most accidents.
