[PDF File; 64.0 MB]
Abstract

Productivity is key to success and good service; being organised is a great contributor for a safe, pleasant and efficient work place. For the Lean philosophy, waste reduction is the main driver of improvement and confusion is the sign of its presence. For CSSD Five-S is certainly a methodology to promote. The five S's are: Sort, Situate, Shine, Standardize, Sustain. Implementing Five-S always lead to error reduction, work accident reduction and efficiency improvement. More over, employees always experienced it as a team building exercise!
This seminar presents the Five-S in a CSSD environment with pictures and suggestions "How to" implement it.
