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 5S`s - 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.
