Corona resistant production environment using the 5S method

Gekozen als Outstanding Organization, stonden de 5S Company en Pon CAT’s CI-manager, Ben van der Werff gepland als keynote presentator. Op de virtueel gehouden 2020 Caterpillar Dealer CI Conference.


Beide presentatoren vertellen over het gebruik van beproefde methoden en nieuwe tools om oude dilemma’s, zoals het in stand houden van de 5S werkplek organisatie. Ook spraken zij over de nieuwe uitdagingen die het Corona virus met zich meebrachten bij Koninklijke Gazelle. Een corona-proof productieomgeving met de 5S methode.

Royal Gazelle, the Dutch-based bicycle manufacturer, was confronted with a full operational shutdown of three weeks at the beginning of this year due to the Coronavirus. In these three weeks, the production has made and implemented a restart plan that ensures the safety of all employees. A smooth resumption of production was essential because of the explosive demand for bicycles of the brand.

Presenters Ben van der Werff & Dennis van de Bunt showed the virtual attendees how Koninklijke Gazelle was able to improve and maintain the effectiveness and safety of the workplaces during the pandemic. In doing so, the organization benefited from the already implemented 5S method and the 5S assurance app and was able to quickly benefit from higher productivity with the safety guarantee for its employees.

The supporting tool in this success story is the 5S app, an effective and convenient web-based application for securing the first 4S steps. This tool has been developed for organizations that already have a 5S roll-out have done and want to capitalize on the results and for organizations that are looking for how to start a successful 5S rollout with guaranteed results.

The 5S app is the solution for the ongoing focus on keeping your workplace clean, organized, safe and improving through the people who use the workplace.
