5S in the workplace

Many manufacturing facilities have opted to follow the path towards a “5S” workplace organizational and housekeeping methodology as part of continuous improvement or lean manufacturing processes.The term refers to five pillars:

  • Sort: Remove all items not needed for current production operations
  • Set in Order: Arrange needed items so that they are easy to use
  • Shine: Keep everything, every day, swept and clean.
  • Standardize: Integrate Sort, Set in Order, and Shine into a unified whole.
  • Sustain: Make a habit of properly maintaining correct procedures.


The 5S system improves business operations by creating and maintaining a clean and structured work environment. Implementing a 5S methodology has a variety of benefits:

  • Reducing part retrieval times and errors
  • Improving safety
  • Lowering manufacturing costs
  • Enabling quicker, more efficient production
