The 5S system can lead to great increases in profits through the re-organization of a workplace. The objectives are to improve safety, productivity, quality, and efficiency. A time-driven approach brings order to the productivity improvement process. Instead of being overwhelmed by a large number of seemingly disjointed projects, you can integrate projects at a higher level and implement changes in a systematic way. Time becomes the overall productivity measure and integrates the improvement performance.
Cycle Time Management has implemented the 5S system as part of their Lean Training with great results across many industries

Treating people as a value adding asset in the implementation of 5S is an essential CTM ingredient for success. This allows the people in the organization to take responsibility for the business process and the improvements, which is essential to generate a continuous improvement mentality and empower the whole organization to assist in the decision make for future success!
