This product (One-Page 5S - Lean 5S Made Easy) is a 1-page PDF document, which you can download immediately upon purchase.

The document is an easy-to-follow One-Page guide for 5S in manufacturing. It briefly explains how 5S has a greater purpose than simple housekeeping. It is about standardizing and improving—often overlooked points in a 5S deployment.
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 pillars of this concept are:
1. Seiri – Sort (Sort is the process of removing everything that is not needed in the area. This process involves going into every nook and cranny of the area, all drawers, cabinets, shelves, corners, and closets. This is addressed during a red tag event when people walk through the area with pre-made red tags (either adhesive or wired) and label anything they deem unnecessary in the area. All red-tagged items are then moved to the predetermined red tag area for future disposition.)
2. Seiton – Set-in-Order (Is basically the process of laying out tools, equipment, and processes at the point of use for the worker while also improving overall safety and ergonomics. This step typically takes longer than the others and requires a number of 5S materials such as floor tape, tool control foam, peg- boards, tool shadow tape, label machines, and much more.)
3. Seiso – Shine (Much of this step is handled during the Set in Order step. The intent here is threefold. First, clean the area, which may include scrubbing or painting equipment, replacing floors, painting walls, and more. Second, develop a schedule and responsibilities to make sure the area is kept up to standards. Third, and most important, Shine provides an atmosphere where we are able to use cleaning as a way of inspecting equipment by making it easier to spot machinery in need of repair)
4. Seiketsu – Standardize (This step helps set clear, visible methods for how the agreed upon status of the area should be kept. One of the key tools used for standardizing is the 5S Audit. )
5. Shitsuke – Sustain (Considered to be the most difficult of the 5 pillars, Sustain is the routine that keeps everything from going back to the way it was before 5S.)

This printable (A3) One-Page PDF gives you all necessary high level knowledge needed to understand the Lean 5S.
