Japanese theory of the 5S


Dear sir :

I'm looking for a some book about the Japanese theory of the 5S.

"5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace"
by Hiroyuki Hirano

from Abe Books
info on Amazon

August 10, 2009

Hi, it's not a good idea to accept the 5s theory as a single entity, it is part of a wider Japanese work and company ethic.

You could just a easily end up with only the 1s method (stuff everywhere).

"Gemba Kaizen" [link is to info about book at Amazon] by Masaaki Imai is the place to start, strangely for a business book it's really a compelling read.
