The 5S management philosophy eliminates waste and improves office organisation and standardisation. How? By serving as the foundation for continuous improvement actions and creating a technique for applying other Lean methodologies.

Although 5S concepts are simple and easy to understand, many organisations fail in the implementation process by mistaking 5S as a spring-cleaning program. Clarity’s workshop shows that when applied correctly, 5S continuously improves not just workplace organisation but also productivity.

We’ll explore how to:

• Reduce mistakes or errors from employees
• Reduce search time in locating files, information and supplies
• Improve employee safety and morale
• Improve customer service

Paul Mann - Hub Operations Manager, DPD

Working with Clarity as a partnership really works for me; you’re open to different challenges and the team that I work with have been really responsive, they’ve also come up with some ideas which I’d not thought of. I see myself as an expert in visual management but you guys have still managed to teach me some things.

Craig Wilkinson – Network Rail

Thanks to Clarity, we follow all our KPI’s through visual management. Alongside the manufacturing successes we’re seeing with Clarity’s visual management, we’ve also seen a 30% reduction in our general waste and are saving £40,000 a year on one part of our waste management visual solutions through standardising our processes.

Steve Lomax – Crown Paints

Clarity’s solutions have played an important part in our visualisation success in Network Rail’s LNE, and are essential to the programme. Clarity supported us to reduce our Operations and Maintenance expenditure from £180,000,000 to £166,000,000. That’s a £14,000,000 saving! We also saw a 20% reduction on workforce and irregular working accidents and general performance across operators on the East Coast Mainline has improved.
