5s @ Toyota Manufacturing Facility

Toyota, leader in lean manufacturing system

Achieved their unique profitability with continually practicing Lean
When I was student @ Uni Moratuwa we practiced 5S. One of our batchmate Ushan was student leader and Dr. Jagath Premachandra was consultant. We did many things to implement 5S in department of Chemical & Process Engineering [the department where I was studied]
Now I am working for intimate garment manufacturing cluster in Sri Lanka and we are also practicing 5S + S [6S]
To be honest 5S is not in my life and I have lot of resistence to be a 5S person. But I have understand the improtance of 5S to eliminate every type of waste and to be profitable in business.
