Greenbelt 5S Kaizen

Last week our Greenbelts transformed a warehouse and purchasing area by implementing 5S.
Do you remember what the 5S' are? (Check your answers at the end of the post)
Greenbelts gathering information on the current process and the needs of the process owner

Some groups achieved up to a 50% increase in storage space and even increased the useable floor space by 60%. Each group created comprehensive action plans for the process owners of each work area so that the savings can be sustained and built upon in the future.

The 5S's
  1. Sort
  2. Set in order
  3. Shine
  4. Standardize
  5. Sustain
 What is the largest savings your team achieved from a 5S kaizen?
