The 5s are defined as a set of workplace rules designed to increase efficiency and help enable lean manufacturing. The 5s are: 1. Sort - separate out what's needed and eliminate unnecessary material. 2. Set in order - make sure that everything has a clear place. 3. Shine - keep the workplace clean. 4. Standardize - follow procedures and demarcate clear responsibilities. 5. Sustain - make compliance with procedures automatic.
