"A place for everything and everything in its place"
Neat and orderly work areas promote higher quality and efficiency throughout ORMEC's manufacturing facility. 5S methodology reduces wasteful activities. Equipment, materials and inventory are well organized and coordinated.
By maintaining internal 5S standards and practices, processes are more efficient, driving production costs of motion control products and systems lower.
Sort - Evaluate tool requirements for each cell
Straighten - Arrange tools and equipment
Shine - All tools and materials are returned to proper storage locations at the end of shifts
Standardize - All are aware of requirements to maintain 5S standards
Sustain - Monitoring prevents a decline back to old methods of operating
"Has anyone seen my screwdriver?" "Where did I put my meter?" You won't hear those questions at ORMEC, where 5S methodology eliminates the non-value added search for tools and materials.
