Value Stream Mapping: 5S The Finishing Touches

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!
