6S is a systematic approach for productivity, quality, and safety improvement that is applicable to all types of business. It represents five Japanese disciplines for maintaining visual control at a workplace – Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu, and Shitsuke – that can be translated from the Japanese to Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. The 6S methodology focuses on having visual order, organization, cleanliness, and standardization. It simplifies and organizes a work environment, and reduces waste and non-value activity, while improving quality, efficiency, and safety. And a well-organized workplace motivates people.
Participants in this course will gain valuable insight into the 6S methodology through theoretical training and hands-on application. Additionally, QSG offers to work with participants’ organizations in the development of strategic 6S planning, execution, and tracking of a 6S program.
