What the 5S are
1. Seiri 整理 : Sort
2. Seiton 整頓 : Systematize or Being tidy
3. Seisou 清掃 : Sweep or Cleaning
4. Seiketsu 清潔 : means Sanitize or Cleanliness
5. Shitsuke しつけ : means Self discipline
The 5S process can actually be the fundamental to obtain the certificate of ISO 19011 management, and Japanese business consultants often assist companies to train employees to learn the 5S process at the first step in training, implemented not only in the workplace in Japan but those also in other countries particularly in Asia.
