In this webinar, Institute for OpEx Faculty Member James Marrese will dive into the foundational Operational Excellence enabler of 5S, beginning with how it has been traditionally applied at individual processes, workstations, and machines. From there, he will discuss how 5S applies between processes and why it’s an equally important area to implement. The session will also address how 5S is used to support and enable value stream flow and customer delivery, not just overall workplace organization. In addition to covering the basics of 5S, attendees will learn why 5S is an essential component of any OpEx implementation.
