Jump start your lean journey
5S Workplace Organization and Standardization
5S (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain), is a proven, effective way to identify and eliminate wasteful, non-value adding practices from the workplace. Created and perfected by Toyota, 5S helps to reduce waste and achieve more consistent operational results. 5S is the foundation of a successful lean implementation, and an intro to 5S is crucial to establish an effective lean culture.


Increase productivity, reduce waste, and improve safety by implementing 5S.
The workshop is split into two parts:  

Part 1: A 4-hour presentation and activities in a public workshop setting. 
 
Part 2: A 4-hour session at your company to get you started with a 5S project. 
 
The second 4-hour session takes place within 6 weeks of the classroom session. A Maine MEP Project Manager visits your company and coaches the workshop participants to take the first steps in applying what they have learned. This second session is limited to manufacturing companies. Please contact us to learn more.
This event is a collaboration between Maine MEP and Eastern Maine Community College.
