How do you conduct a 5S audit?
Can you please define the steps involved in conducting 5S audit? 5S is the lean management tool focusing on waste reduction, maintaining a clean environment and ease in working.
There is a nice summary of doing a 5S event or activity in your workplace on the "Dummies" site: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/what-is-5s-in-six-sigma.html
Before getting involved with all 5S activities you need to understand the extent of "Sort" needed. This can take some time and should be completed before you can fully plan you 5S project.
One can audit 5 S in restricted area (say a Department) or the whole organization. The audit can be at level of current status/achievement in each "S" as well as whole. A check list will help to carry out the audit. Status and recommendations will make auditee Dept. to improve their performance.
