On Tuesday January 17th, 2017 Daniel Westlund, Distribution Manager at Best Buy Canada spoke about how his facility recently launched and implemented a 5S Workplace Organization Program at their Langley Distribution Centre.
5S was originally developed in Japan and is one of the techniques that enabled Just-in-Time manufacturing. The methodology has expanded from manufacturing and is now being applied to a wide variety of industries including logistics.
The five 5S phases are Sort (Seiri), Set In Order (Seiton), Shine (Seiso), Standardize (Seiketsu) and Sustain (Shitsuke). If you are interested in learning about 5S or are considering launching a 5S Program in your facility, this was can’t miss meeting.
