5S Method in the manufacturing
Manufacturing and production companies are actively seeking solutions and optimizations to streamline processes, increase safety and increase the overall quality of products. With raw materials and good workers becoming increasingly scarce and expensive, it is important to work as efficiently, safely and profitably as possible. The 5S method is a sustainable investment in structural improvement, for every maker.
Biggest challenges in the manufacturing
Companies in the manufacturing face specific challenges. Challenges related to optimizing production processes, finding and retaining suitable personnel and reducing waste – both of materials and time. 5S Company and CI Company use the ideology of the 5S method and Lean philosophy to achieve impressive results. Based on five themes, we make the rollout and effect of the 5S method for the manufacturing and process industry transparent and tangible.
- Skilled people are becoming increasingly difficult to find. A professional appearance helps to enthuse and seduce the right people.
- Training courses are no longer what they used to be: companies must be able to train people (quickly) themselves
- The new generation often wants to be 'captivated' and 'challenged' when it comes to work. In short: the work must be more fun than with the competition.
- Producing in the Netherlands is becoming increasingly difficult with increasing labor costs and competition from low-wage countries. This makes it important not to be too expensive and to be able to deliver (custom) quickly.
- Local production ensures a smaller footprint, but means that you have to organize processes properly in order to compete with abroad, because price remains the leading factor for many.
