    Introduction to the 5S concept
    The 5S system is often the first step on the lean journey because the cleaning and organization standards of 5S provide a foundation for all future improvements.

    5S is a system of organization consisting of Sort, Set in
    Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain

    Full implementation of 5S requires 5S Teams include an Evaluation Team, a Photography Team and a Mapping Team

    5S helps a company:
    –  Stay organized
    –  Utilize space
    –  Flow efficiently
    –  Maintain an attractive appearance
