Increase Profitability and Decrease Liability with 5S

A criticalyet often overlooked area in the visual workplace is the concept of continuous improvement. In this important work, JIT expert Hiroyuki Hirano introduces his 5S System: Sort, Set In Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. These steps are designed to improve efficiency, strengthen maintenance, and provide continuous improvement in all facets of a company 's operations. Addressing the skepticism of executives who deride the 5S System for its simplicity, the author, revered for his no-nonsense approach, warns of disastrous consequences for companies that fail to recognize its value; if they cannot successfully implement 5S, there is little hope of integrating large-scale changes such as JIT or re-engineering.

Presented in a thorough, detailed style, 5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace explains why the 5S's are so important, as well as the nuts- and-bolts of 5S implementation. Filled with numerous case studies, hundreds of graphic illustrations, and training materials, including over forty 5S user forms, this volume is a must-have guide for organizations seeking to thrive.

To introduce the 5S system and sell its use to executives as well as workers, consider purchasing

Synopsis:

In this important sourcebook, JIT expert Hiroyuki Hirano provides the most vital information available on the visual workplace, a critical but often overlooked area of continuous improvement. This book describes how the 5Ss - sort, set in order, shine, standardize, sustain -foster efficiency, maintenance, and continuous improvement in all areas of the company.

It's too simple is the response when people hear about the 5S's. Simple, yes, but if ignored, the results may be disastrous.When executives inquired, What kind of rationalization policy should I adopt to make sure my company survives into the 21st century? Hirano answered, The 5S's. Why? Because a company that cannot successfully implement the 5S's cannot expect to effectively integrate JIT, re-engineering, or any other large-scale change.

Presented in a thorough, detailed style, 5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace explains why the 5S's are important and the who, what, where, and how of 5S implementation. This book includes numerous case studies, hundreds of graphic illustrations, and over forty 5S user forms and training materials.

Synopsis:

In this important sourcebook, JIT expert Hiroyuki Hirano provides the most vital information available on the visual workplace.
