5 Pillars of the Visual Work Place:

5S or 5-S : 5 Pillars of the Visual Work Place:Organization. Orderliness, Cleanliness, Standardized Cleanup, and Discipline are needed. This is what Mr. Hirano calls the "5S's" -- simple activities that can be difficult to implement. And this is what is required for companies to survive in the years ahead. Americans too often expect high drama from an idea when what is needed is simplicity--and a solid foundation to sustain good work. In 1988 Productivity Press published what we considered to be the best company wide introduction to the Just-in-time (JIT_ production system. It was a picture book entitled JIT Factory Revolution: A Pictorial Guide to Factory Design of the Future. One of the numerous books written by Hiroyuki Hirano, a top international consultant, it sparked the interest of Auburn University's Dr. JT Black. His invaluable editing transformed Mr. Hirano's textbook for Japanese factory workers into an educational and eye- opening "before and after JIT plant tour" for American workers as well.
