5S stands for Sort, Set-In-Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain.
It is a process by which work areas are cleaned and organized, confusion vanishes and waste is eliminated. 5S implementations most often also produce the happy by-product of increased employee morale.
As an added benefit, Vector Strategies' program extends 5s philosophy to process and operating procedure documentation, helping to ensure compliance with not only the letter but with the spirit of ISO 9000.
Although safety is emphasized throughout 5S philosophy, many organizations desire to raise safety awareness even further, thus providing the 6th "S" in 6S philosophy : Safety.
Vector Strategies will work with your organization to implement a customized 5S or 6S program that results in changes in your work areas that are pleasing to both the eye and the bottom line
