Our 5S Assessment Program is a one day in person tour of your facility with a laser like focus on your 5S process. Much more than just a scoring of each 5S component, I will conduct a robust and thorough analysis for each of the areas below. You will receive a comprehensive report of my findings along with a detailed plan for improvement. Some of the areas covered are below:


  1. Review of your current 5S training program
  2. Red Tag process review
  3. Standards – colors, supplies, expectations, ease of use, clarity
  4. Sustaining - Rewards/recognition programs?
  5. A deep dive into your 5S Audit program – scoring, subjectivity, expectations, accountability, frequency, follow up to action items, enthusiasm, empathetic, challenging or subdued (just checking off or root cause), roles and responsibilities.
  6. 5S Communication – methods, updated, perception.
  7. Set In Order (i.e. Material availability – stocked, locked, empowering. Standards?)
  8. Supervisor/Management/Sr. Staff involvement? What is the hierarchy? 5S Roles?
  9. Behavioral challenges impacting 5S progress
  10. Visual control ideas for floor marking, signs, Kanban, safety, and 5S.
  11. Two bi-weekly phone calls to review improvements made and discuss and resolve any ongoing challenges
  12. A thorough clearly defined Action Plan for improvement


As an added benefit, I will report on any employee safety concerns. Additionally, this visit can be custom tailored to meet your specific needs. Simply give me a call.
