    While the methodology of 5S may include cleaning and shining, it should not be strictly called housekeeping. The practice of 5S however, is one that is multifaceted and brings together organization and creating a culture of discipline.

    If you’ve used 5S in your workplace before, did you just clean up? Or how did you make it more meaningful for your facility? Let us know in the discussion!

    Hi, we implemented 5S in our workplace just a few weeks ago. It was defiantly not just housekeeping but involves almost every aspect/process within our work environment. We are just starting to scrape the surface of 5S but are already noticing some beneficial results.
