What if your lean journey could follow along a relatable and entertaining 3S transformation at home… so that everyone is engaged and everyone understands?

What’s Inside The Course

Introduction to 3S

Discover the three practices of 3S: sort, shine, and standardize.
Learn that 3S must be every day, everyone, and everywhere to be successful.

Introduction to 3S: Sort

Sorting is simple… it’s about getting rid of the stuff you don’t need.
Using a quarantine area of some kind can help expedite the sorting process.
Sorting is best performed every day by everyone, everywhere!

Introduction to 3S: Shine

Shining is about cleaning in such a way that problem discover and prevention is easy.
Another term for “shine” is “sweep.”
It’s important to develop standards for what is expected for cleanliness.
Shine standards should consider what, who, when, and how cleaning is to be performed.
It’s also smart to eliminate the sources of mess so that mess isn’t made in the first place.

Introduction to 3S: Standardize

Anything can be standardized: location, label, quantity, process parameters, work methods (standard work), sequence, etc.
Standardization is what makes good ideas stick!
Standardization is not permanent; it must be continuously improved.
A proper love for standardization demonstrates respect, teamwork, and improvement.
