Video Case Study
Lean thinking is the dynamic, knowledge-driven and customer- focused process through which all people in a defined enterprise continuously eliminate waste and create value.
Woven within the culture at Toyota is passion for daily improvement. Although our systems and daily lives may work sufficiently, we are always looking for ways to increase efficiency and productivity. One to stay accountable for these values is through the Toyota Lean Management operational processes, including “5S”.
The process of 5S was coined and made popular by Toyota. It is based on 5 principles starting with the letter “S”. In Japanese, Seiri (Sort), Seiton (Systematize), Seiso (Shine), Seiketsu (Standardize), and Shitsuke (Sustain).
