Special Encore Presentation: The Best of the Rest of 5S
December 5, 2013
Hosted by Gwendolyn D. Galsworth, Ph.D.
What’s special about scrubbing the workplace? Or about safety for that matter? And what’s the real reason we implement so-called “lines and labels?” (In fact, there are eleven such reasons.) In this show on 5S, your host and visual workplace expert, Gwendolyn Galsworth, un-nests the engines behind the four of the five Ss (or six, depending how you count). Listen as she tells you why she calls her approach to industrial housekeeping “5S on Steroids”. And learn about the logic of smart placement, the step Gwendolyn developed to make sure when you lay down the lines, they contribute to metrics-driven performance and the bottom line. Hear about many different types of borders, and the powerful role an address plays, even when your borders are color-coded. Speaking of color-coding, do you know how that can go wrong, very wrong? Join us and find out. This is the show when 5S ramps up beyond neat and clean and soars into visuality! Another great ENCORE episode.
