Foreign object debris (FOD) is a substance, debris or article alien to a vehicle or system which would potentially cause damage.

Foreign Object Damage

Foreign object damage is any damage attributed to a foreign object (i.e. any object that is not part of the vehicle) that can be expressed in physical or economic terms and may or may not degrade the product’s required safety or performance characteristics. FOD is an acronym often used in aviation to describe both the damage done to aircraft by foreign objects, and the foreign objects themselves.

Foreign Object Debris Prevention Signs

FOD has been part of accidents and unscheduled maintenance reports since the earliest days of flight. Propeller nicks, tire damage, and fabric tears go way back. But the problem of foreign objects really came into focus with the introduction of the jet engine.

FOD includes loose hardware, tools, parts, pavement fragments, catering supplies, building materials, rocks, sand, pieces of luggage, pens, coins, badges, hats, soda cans, paper clips, rags, trash, paperwork and even wildlife. Anything that can find its way into an aircraft engine or flight control mechanisms is a recipe for foreign object damage.

And, this damage can result in anything from minor repairs to catastrophic events. FOD can be found anywhere in the aviation environment–from the manufacturing plant to airport terminal gates, cargo aprons,taxiways, runways, and run-up pads.

5S in Lean (In a nut shell)

Shadow boards for Cleaning Equipment,Shadow boards for Cleaning Equipment

5S is the name of a workplace organisation method that uses a list of FIVE Japanese words:

seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, and shitsuke.

Transliterated or translated into English, they all start with the letter “S”.

The 5S’s describes how to organise a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order.

What is 5 S

5S in Lean

The First Pillar: SORT

Sort means that you remove all items from the work place that are not needed for current production (or clerical) operations.

Surprisingly, this simple concept is easily misunderstood. At first, it may be difficult to distinguish between what is needed and what is not.

Common Issues:

People tend to hold onto parts, thinking that they may be needed for the next order (sometimes holding on to obsolete or ‘out of issue’ parts without realising).

They see an inappropriate machine and think they will use it someday or somehow.

This leads to inventory and equipment tending to build up over time and start getting in the way of everyday production activities. This leads to a massive build-up of waste factory wide. This factory waste leads to numerous problems including the reduction of floor space, creation of trip hazards and damage to employee morale due to a messy work environment.

During the SORT stage of the 5S methodology, a RED TAG HOLDING AREA is set up in order to allow an evaluation of unwanted items. RED TAGs are used to identify unwanted items before placing the ‘tagged items’ in the RED TAG HOLDING AREA.

The Second Pillar: SET IN ORDER

Set In Order can be defined as arranging needed items so that they are easy to use and labelling them so that they are easy to find and put away.

Set In Order should always be implemented with Sort.

5S Principles

The Third Pillar: SHINE

Shine means sweeping floors, wiping off machinery, and generally making sure everything in the factory or workplace stays clean. In a manufacturing company, Shine is closely related to the ability to turn out quality products. Shine also includes saving labour by finding ways to prevent dirt, dust and debris from piling up in the workshop.

Shine should be integrated into daily maintenance tasks to combine cleaning checkpoints with maintenance checkpoints.


The Forth Pillar: STANDARDISE

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.

The Fifth Pillar: SUSTAIN

Within the context of the five pillars, Sustain means making a habit of properly maintaining correct procedures.

The first four pillars can be implemented without difficulty if the workplace is one where the employees commit to sustaining 5S conditions. Such a workplace is likely to enjoy high productivity and high quality.


Before you start your 5S Campaign….You need to make all employees aware of what 5S is!
