I found this article, 5S Study and Research Page, via another blog, Beyond Lean. It’s worth a look because it covers a lot of material and eventually gets around to some fairly useful “how to” information. I could do with less of the “5S is…” material. I find that most folks don’t care about definitions…they just want to know what it looks like in action and how to get it going. (If that describes you, be sure to take a look at the How To Implement Lean Manufacturing right here at this site.)
That said, somebody put a lot of work into the article and it’s worth a look.
