5 S Visual Control

Workplace Organization is the most powerful combination of two lean tools, 5S and Visual Management.

5 S helps in Cost reduction , increase productivity , build team spirit , build quality , faster response to customer , higher safety.

5 S is used to identify and eliminate waste that causes searching for tools, equipment, information, wasteful activities etc. The 5S principle is “a place for everything, and everything in its place

A 5 S visual control system have five steps:

Sort- Separate necessary from unnecessary items
Set in Order – Identify a defined location for necessary items
Shine – Inspect all necessary items through cleaning
Standardize – Implement the best practices in all work areas
Sustain- Develop 5S into a daily habit
Visual controls are a series of techniques used to allow anyone to differentiate between a normal and an abnormal situation with focus on correcting the problem as it occurs thereby minimizing the wastes. A Visual Workplace is a More Productive, More Dynamic & More Mistake-Free Workplace The most important benefit of Workplace organization is that it shows when something is out of place or missing.
Visual Control and Management is one of the most important lean techniques to building team based control over the processes to achieve optimum results from your resources.
Pictures, graphics , diagrams and visual representations of processes are used to get messages across the whole organization. The workplace in most factories , floor areas are painted and marked to indicate what can and cannot be put there.

Visual management evolved in factories, but its principles apply equally in any setting, from offices to call centers.
5S and Visual management help you:

Understand and indicate work priorities
See whether performance (usually daily) was met
Identify the flow of work and what is being done
Identify when something is going wrong or not happening
Show what standards of work should be Communicate to everyone what performance measures are in place
Demonstrate all the elements required for safe and effective work
Provide real time feedback to everyone involved in the whole process
Cut down on meetings to discuss work issues.
Most of us have some visual clues in our workplaces. They may include notices with instructions, signs pointing to other places, or pictures of products or services. They sometimes help, but often notices literally become part of the wallpaper, lack relevance, and are soon ignored.
The training program will help you understand the different techniques involved in Visual control and management . The techniques used to create a visually managed workplace fall into a number of categories:

Marked floor areas/hatching
Direction of process flow shown on floor or wall
Shadow boards to visibly store items frequently needed
Identified equipment & locations – including files, processing status, etc
Visual information
Process documentation
Skill & training boards to indicate competence development needs across the team Visual production control
Visual process indicators (Jobs in progress, productivity, output, lead time, etc)
Optimize work-in-progress levels show to prevent over-production
Production status boards
Kanban visual signals
Visual management in service industry

In service settings, visual management can seem much more challenging since tools such as autonomation don’t really apply automatically. However, all aspects of visual management are relevant, so long as we can persuade people to follow the processes necessary to make them work. Autonomation can be redefined as ‘no error forward’.
Apart from the overall outcomes of improving customer satisfaction, the introduction of Visual control and management tends to have a number of benefits, which include greater employee involvement and motivation, as they feel more in control of what they are doing; better communication; raised quality and productivity of work; faster decision making processes; and less waste in processes.
