What is 5S?

5S is a strategic approach to implementing quality, process, and business improvement through the use of foundational principles of continuous improvement in order to have meaningful impact on key business results. Developed at Toyota in the 1970s, use of the 5S methodology has expanded to many industrial and business organizations. Boeing, Ford Motor Company, Genie Industries, among others, have received widespread attention in the business media for their successful 5S programs.

Program Purpose

To meet a demand for businesses the need for flexible training options in business improvement through 5S, Enna developed a new training initiative in 5S methodology with the cooperation of Philips, Materials Control Group, TPF Europe, Timmerije, Minkels, and SMIT Transforms. This flexible program was created for businesses and their employees to pursue unconventional training and overview of the 5S methodology.

Program Components

The program consists of 9 modules plus examples, illustrations, and 5S forms.
The 7 modules consists of a combination of trainers material and on-line course training and is an excellent way to train your whole company without shutting down a department or taking away from production. The required modules are:

  • Preparation
  • Introduction
  • Workplace Analysis

  • Setting in Order
  • Shining

5S Distance On-line Learning

The 5S On-line Learning mode offers shared learning due to creating a virtual class composition – organizations and their employees from more than 20 countries with varied work experiences and background have participated in this program. The material is highly robust and educational, forming the bedrock of interaction with illustrations, examples, and explanations or each of the 5Ss. It is an experience and format that will deliver the best value – that is the 5S on-line program experience.

We use a variety of delivery methods to give you the highest quality learning, with the luxury of working at your own organization's speed and timeframe. We also use a variety of modules. For instance, of the five core modules, all are able to log out and log back in at any time and forward to the next section. We provide excellent print based trainer material for all of our 5S modules and this facilitates local documentation and study groups to provide the material to support on-site group activity – this is very important to guide learning on-site.

One of the many benefits of this 5S online distance learning mode is that you commit to smaller sections of training with as much structure and flexibility you want in your 5S training program.

Study Groups

We actively encourage and ask that you facilitate both local and virtual study groups. These are a valuable source of learning, social, and moral support, providing opportunities for discussion with others. They also help to broaden your employee's perceptions of the topics being studied.

Some local study groups meet fortnightly, others less frequently. Some meet on the evening shift for an hour a week, while others might meet on the weekends during a time line that makes sense for their operation.
