CALIBRATION Sign _SKU-7912
Clear, well designed and sizeable departmental signage is key to supporting the new 5S factory layout. Huge amounts of production time is wasted through inadequate signage. Imagine an airport without good signage? It would be frustrating for all people within that airport, not to mention all the delays and missed flights. The same applies to factories and plants. See below for more information on our signs:

The flow and movement of people and parts within factories and plants are very important. You may have designed the most efficient facility layout, but do people understand the ‘flow of the factory’ at a glance? It’s easy to take for granted the importance of factory signage, especially if you yourself have been working at a facility for some time.
To create and run a world class 5S lean facility, you must be aiming towards a ‘Visual Factory’, where current employees, new employees, visitors and Auditors can identify in an instant, the flow of parts and processes and be able to locate any and all departments quickly!
Eliminate all unnecessary tools, parts, and instructions. Go through all tools, materials, and so forth in the plant and work area. Keep only essential items and eliminate what is not required, prioritising things per requirements and keeping them in easily-accessible places. Everything else is stored or discarded.
Straightening or Setting in Order
Arranging tools, parts, and instructions in such a way that the most frequently used items are the easiest and quickest to locate. The purpose of this step is to eliminate time wasted in obtaining the necessary items for an operation.
Sweeping or Shine
Clean the workspace and all equipment, and keep it clean, tidy and organised. At the end of each shift, clean the work area and be sure everything is restored to its place. This makes it easy to know what goes where and ensures that everything is where it belongs.
All work stations for a particular job should be identical. All employees doing the same job should be able to work in any station with the same tools that are in the same location in every station. Everyone should know exactly what his or her responsibilities are for adhering to the first 3 esses. Synonym : Systemise
Sustaining the Practice
Maintain and review standards. Once the previous 4 esses have been established, they become the new way to operate. Maintain focus on this new way and do not allow a gradual decline back to the old ways. While thinking about the new way, also be thinking about yet better ways. When an issue arises such as a suggested improvement, a new way of working, a new tool or a new output requirement, review the first 4 esses and make changes as appropriate. It should be made as a habit and be continually improved.
