What is the 5S System?
The 5S System is a lean production tool that results in a clean, safe, well organized workplace, designed to help reduce waste and enhance productivity.
A "Shadow Board" or "Store-Board" is a tool organizer. The tool silhouettes are printed on a Plastic or Aluminum panel. The boards can then be mounted directly on a wall or the end of a rack as a "static tool station", or as a mobile tool station" mounted on a stainless steel frame on wheels.
Shadow Boards ensure that cleaning tools are stored in a highly visible way as part of the 5S System. Your employees will work in a more organized way, not wasting time for searching for a tool, or wondering where to place them when they are done.
Shadow Boards are also your company's marketing tools. They show your visitors/auditors that your workplace is well organized and use the 5S System.
