Q son las 5 s

Implementación de las 5s

A menudo se pasa por alto que la mejora de las pequeñas cosas que le rodean puede tener un gran impacto en los grandes aspectos de su proceso de trabajo. Afortunadamente, el método de las 5S puede ayudarle a convertir su lugar de trabajo en un santuario de la productividad.

Las 5S son un método de optimización del espacio de trabajo y una de las bases del Kaizen. Consiste en 5 pasos consecutivos que permiten a cualquier equipo organizar su lugar de trabajo para conseguir la máxima eficiencia en los procesos. Las 5S significan:

Establecer normas de limpieza. Limpiar y eliminar toda la basura, la grasa y la suciedad. La limpieza proporciona un lugar de trabajo seguro y hace que se noten los posibles problemas (por ejemplo, fugas en el equipo, piezas sueltas, papeleo o materiales sueltos).

Involucre a los trabajadores para que realicen sistemáticamente los pasos 1, 2 y 3 anteriores a diario para mantener el lugar de trabajo en perfecto estado como un proceso estándar. Establece horarios y fija expectativas de cumplimiento.

Reconoce que cada herramienta debe tener un lugar específico que permita al equipo encontrarla rápidamente, utilizarla y devolverla al mismo sitio. No obstante, evita que el lugar de trabajo se llene de equipos innecesarios.

5s in the workplace

This methodology was developed in Japan by two people, Osada and Hirano, who structured a way to implement this philosophy. It is said that the principle of 5S comes from Henry Ford, but he used the CANDO system (meaning cleanliness, tidiness, neatness, discipline and continuous improvement) before developing this methodology.

Running a 5S event is quite simple. With a little preparation, a 5S event can deliver outstanding results, facilitating team building, motivating the people involved, and creating a safe workplace that allows for visual identification of anomalies for immediate corrective action. Some of the things to consider before starting the event include:

– What part of the company needs 5S? Select the department, plant or location where the event will be held. Consider the department, area or plant that will benefit the most, as it will also create a stir within the company. This should be the pilot area, where other workers can visit for inspiration.

Sort meaning in 5s

The 5S have been widely disseminated and are used by numerous organizations of various types, such as: industrial companies, service companies, hospitals, educational centers or associations.

Although they are conceptually simple and do not require complex training for the entire staff, nor do they require experts with sophisticated knowledge, it is essential to implement them through a rigorous and disciplined methodology.

Visual management methods can be used to facilitate order, identifying the elements and places in the area. The motto (leitmotiv) «a place for everything, and everything in its place» is common in this task. The aim of this stage is to organize the work space in order to avoid wasting time and energy.

The aim of this stage is to work permanently in accordance with the established standards, checking the monitoring of the 5S system and developing actions for continuous improvement, thus closing the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle (i.e. ‘plan, do, check and act’). If this step is applied without the necessary rigor, the 5S system loses its effectiveness.
