Comapnies have been unable to find creative, practical and economical solutions in order to align 5S and visual controls with factory's core objectives to enable detection of deviations off the standards which require problem-solving. All these activities contribute to the continuous improvement culture, another Lean foundation. Thus, visual controls are crucial for smooth day-to-day operations and shop floor teams are often involved both in devising and implementing these tools using 5S principles and during other improvement activities, whereby operations can be checked and maintained throughout each manufacturing stage in a quick and visually effective manner.
This e-book explains how to design, plan and implement 5S and visual controls throughout manufacturing stages. It is a step-by-step guide which connects the entire organization towards enhanced and sustainable results through improved visual management and control.
