Here is the last step in bringing efficiency to your process….5S: Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, Sustain.
The following is what I did for our process we’ve been working on:
Sort: Sorted through packing materials, cupboards and drawers
Straighten: Rearranged things on shelves for easy reference
Shine: Repainted some scuffed spots
Standardize: Future process mapped and posted
Sustain: Weekly cleaning and dusting
There you have it….the process of Lean!
Here is an overview of Value Stream Mapping.
I hope this helps your business and takes some of the stress out of it!
