Increase Profitability and Decrease Liability with 5S

A criticalyet often overlooked area in the visual workplace is the concept of continuous improvement. In this important work, JIT expert Hiroyuki Hirano introduces his 5S System: Sort, Set In Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. These steps are designed to improve efficiency, strengthen maintenance, and provide continuous improvement in all facets of a company's operations. Addressing the skepticism of executives who deride the 5S System for its simplicity, the author, revered for his no-nonsense approach, warns of disastrous consequences for companies that fail to recognize its value; if they cannot successfully implement 5S, there is little hope of integrating large-scale changes such as JIT or re-engineering.

Presented in a thorough, detailed style, 5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace explains why the 5S's are so important, as well as the nuts- and-bolts of 5S implementation. Filled with numerous case studies, hundreds of graphic illustrations, and training materials, including over forty 5S user forms, this volume is a must-have guide for organizations seeking to thrive.

"... an excellent book for beginning polymer chemistry courses. Designed for an undergraduate audience, it is a very clear treatment of large molecule science. Polymer naming is discussed immediately, and there is an appropriate appendix to clarify the many acronyms used in discussing polymers. ... Each chapter has exercises to help with understanding and a group of suggested supplemental readings for more in-depth information. Summing up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division; graduate students; two year technical program students."
