5S has been defined as “A place for everything and everything in its place”.

It is a workplace (mostly industrial) organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri (Sort), seiton (Set-in-Order), seisō (Shine), seiketsu (Standardize), and shitsuke (Sustain).

The course describes how to clean and organize a workspace/workstation for efficiency and effectiveness. The rule of thumb is that after a place is 5S’d, the 30-sec principle will prevail. The 30-sec principle suggests that anything that one is looking for within the work environment, should be able to be retrieved in 30-seconds or less. This will be done by having a place for everything, identifying and storing the items used, clearly labeling each area, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. All these will become possible if the processes at work are standardized.
