To be successful in implementing 5S (Sort, Set, Shine, Standardize, Sustain), audits must be conducted, and four simple rules must be followed:
- Everything HAS a place, and everything is IN its place.
- Nothing on the Floor except Legs, Wheels, or Pallets.
- Clean to Inspect, Inspect to Detect, Detect to Correct, Correct to Perfect.
- When in doubt, throw it out.
