Mind Maps on 5S Workplace Organization Program

The concept of 5S is easy to understand, but difficult to implement & sustain.

5S is a Japanese technique for creating & maintaining a clean, neat and free from clutter workplace that enables producing quality under an efficient and safe work environment. The 5 elects of this concept are:
1. Seiri - Sort (Segregate unwanted items and take them out)
2. Seiton - Set-in-Order (A place for everything & everything in its place)
3. Seiso - Shine (Clean everything to create an impeccable place)
4. Seiketsu - Standardize (Create standards to maintain the workplace)
5. Shitsuke - Sustain (Develop & maintain good workplace habits)

The important part in 5S deployment is:
-Internalizing the concept clearly, and
-Be reminded of the key 5S methods & tools, time & again
This need is fulfilled by the 5S Mind Maps & a Collage, prepared by E&E, the leading workplace posters company.

The 6 mind maps + 1 collage on the concept of 5S can train a user through a network of 5S steps inter-spread with relevant visuals. The charts are based on a concept of ?Mind mapping', developed by the world-renowned author & consultant, Mr. Tony Buzan.

A Mind Map is a powerful graphic technique, which provides a universal key to unlock the potential of the human brain, using words, images, numbers, logic, rhythm, colour and spatial awareness. A Mind Map helps in imparting improved learning and clearer thinking to enhance human performance.

These charts as well as the accompanying 5S collage help people at work place to not only learn and imbibe the concept, but also act as constant reminders and triggers to keep on using the tools of 5S.
