Implementing 5 S


  • Implementing “5 S” workplace organisation methodology

Cordm has experimented for the very first time the “5S” organisation methodology in its manufacturing facility and has chosen to start with the hobbing workshop.

Lean manufacturing or « 5S » is a management philosophy derived mostly from the Toyota Production System that uses a list of 5 japanese words:

Seiri (Sort) ; Seiton (Straighten) ; Seiso (Shine) ; Seiketsu (Standardize) andShitsuke (Sustain)

Production and maintenance operators as well as quality assurance manager were trained during 7 days on site. This experience has enabled the company to improve working conditions, reduce time and energy expenses, organise the workspace and promote the professional image of CORDM.

This first experience is very successful and will be extended in the forthcoming weeks to other working sections.
