WHAT IS 6S?

If your company is like most organizations today, you’re searching for a competitive edge. Something that will reduce costs, increase sales and make
you more agile in a changing business environment.

Well you’ve found it.

Simply put, 6S is a systematic approach to workplace organization. But it’s also much more than that. 6S is about efficiency, competitiveness and survival. It is a deceptively simple system that creates an organized and productive workplace.

But it’s not just about cleaning up and eliminating toolboxes. 6S creates a workplace environment that can adapt and succeed in these turbulent times.
Chaos and unproductively are your enemies; organization and efficiency are your allies.

If implemented correctly and followed diligently, 6S will lead to:
• Lower costs
• Better quality
• Improved safety
• Increased productivity
• Higher employee satisfaction

From the offices of upper management to the workstations in the factory, the power of this system will quickly reveal itself in your bottom line.
6S is sometimes called the six pillars because just like the physical pillars that hold up a structure, 6S has six elements that support the effectiveness of the system. And just like the pillars of a building, if one were to weaken or fail, the entire structure would fall.
