Description

Join us for a 5s Lean Coffee Event in September!

This month's Ames Lean Coffee will be held at the CIRAS office located at 1805 Collaboration Place, Ames, IA 50010. This month's coffee will focus on the topic of 5s and will be facilitated by Steve Wilson. Steve will present on the topic of 5s and will then ask you to discuss specific questions around 5s in small groups – Lean Coffee style.

5S is a technique that results in a workplace that is clean, uncluttered, safe, and well organized. The 5S pillars provide a methodology for organizing, cleaning, developing, and sustaining a productive work environment. A 5S environment has "a place for everything and everything in its place," with all tools and materials ready where and when they are needed. You will learn how 5S can help reduce waste and optimize productivity in any work environment.

This session will include

  • Discussing 5S and describe its overall purpose and benefits, and identifying the five phases of its process. What it is and what it IS NOT
  • For each phase we will drill down to discuss key objectives, tools or methods used to reach those objectives, and the benefits achieved
  • We will talk about how it ties into an organization's overall roadmap for operational excellence.
  • And of course – the session will include coffee… and light pastries

Seating will be limited so we recommend you register early – registration is required. This is a free event for ILC members and non-members.
