Event: Workplace Essentials ā€“ 5S and Value Stream Mapping


5S / Workplace Organization

Benefits of the 5S system include improved overall quality, work standardization, decreased change over time and improved safety. Among other improvements, manufacturers typically also experience a reduction in storage costs, cycle times and machine downtimes.

This workshop provides an in-depth overview of the 5S system (Sort, Set-in-Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain). Participants apply each ā€œSā€ to a simulated factory and measure the results of their efforts. Includes photographed case studies of 5-S applications in different companies, use of 5-S tracking tools (e.g., checklist, audit forms) that participants can use in their own facilities.

Value Stream Mapping Value Stream Mapping (VSM) enables a company to identify waste in manufacturing and administrative processes using objective data. VSM often results in reduced costs, improved communication and increased quality. This course shows how to gather the information required to eliminate or reduce non-value added activities and how to use the information to implement Lean projects. Participants will learn the steps necessary for creating a current-state value stream map from customer order back to raw material, and develop a future state vision to act as a blueprint for Lean activities. Participants will create their own current and future state maps based upon data gathered at ACME Stamping, our case study company.
