What is 5S?

Penulis: Assalamualaikum para pembaca yang dikasihi sekalian, pada Sabtu (2/7/2011) lepas saya dikehendaki untuk menghadiri satu training mengenai 5S di kolej saya.

Ya apakah 5S itu, saya pertama kali mendengarnya dalam kursus tersebut. Di sini saya berkongsi serba sedikit tetang 5S. Tapi dalam bahasa inggeris lah ye, sebab diterima dalam bahasa inggeris. Anyway this info is in summary.

Harus saya amalkan, walaupun apa yang dikatakan itu adalah perkara asas yang seharusnya ada. ^__^..hmm bolehkah...

What is 5S?

5S is the name of a workplace organization methodology that uses a list of five Japanese words which are seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu and shitsuke. Transliterated or translated into English, they all start with the letter "S". The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order.

5S is a methodology for organizing, cleaning, developing and sustaining a productive environment.

The decision-making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization which builds a clear understanding among employees of how work should be done. It also instills ownership of the process in each employee.

The 5S  (Sumber dari wikipedia)

1. Seiri : Sorting

Eliminate all unnecessary tools, parts, and instructions. Go through all tools, materials, and so forth in the plant and work area. Keep only essential items and eliminate what is not required, prioritizing things as per requirements and keeping them in easily-accessible places. Everything else is stored or discarded.


2. Seiton: Straightening or setting in order / stabilize

There should be a place for everything and everything should be in its place. The place for each item should be clearly labeled or demarcated. Items should be arranged in a manner that promotes efficient work flow, with equipment used most often being the most easily accessible. Workers should not have to bend repetitively to access materials. Each tool, part, supply, or piece of equipment should be kept close to where it will be used – in other words, straightening the flow path. Seiton is one of the features that distinguishes 5S from "standardized cleanup". This phase can also be referred to as Simplifying


3. Seiso: Sweeping or shining or cleanliness / systematic cleaning

Clean the workspace and all equipment, and keep it clean, tidy and organized. At the end of each shift, clean the work area and be sure everything is restored to its place. This makes it easy to know what goes where and ensures that everything is where it belongs. Spills, leaks, and other messes also then become a visual signal for equipment or process steps that need attention. A key point is that maintaining cleanliness should be part of the daily work – not an occasional activity initiated when things get too messy.


4. Seiketsu: Standardizing

Work practices should be consistent and standardized. All work stations for a particular job should be identical. All employees doing the same job should be able to work in any station with the same tools that are in the same location in every station. Everyone should know exactly what his or her responsibilities are for adhering to the first 3 S's.


5. Shitsuke: Sustaining the discipline or self-discipline

Maintain and review standards. Once the previous 4 S's have been established, they become the new way to operate. Maintain focus on this new way and do not allow a gradual decline back to the old ways. While thinking about the new way, also be thinking about yet better ways. When an issue arises such as a suggested improvement, a new way of working, a new tool or a new output requirement, review the first 4 S's and make changes as appropriate.

The most obvious benefit from items being organized in such a way (i.e. that they are always readily available) is that of improved productivity. Imrove health safety of a place or working environment and also quality of work.

Penulis: Secara ringkas ia adalah cara dimana ia akan memudahkan kita buat kerja dan lagi teratur, mudah mengambil, menganl pasti dna juga pandangan kita terhadap tempat kerja juga lebih nyaman kerana semua dalam keadaan teratur.

Saya perlu mengambil masa selama masa satu minggu untuk ... haish..rasa macam tak sempat aje... ^_^

Okay harap semua dapat ilmu dengan apa yang saya share sedikit ini. ^_^
