Beta Tools recommends a workplace organization method of Japanese origin. The name is derived from the western transcription of 5 Japanese words: seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu e shitsuke.
Remove all unnecessary items from the workplace; only keep the items you need.
SET IN ORDER
Put everything into its proper place: a place for everything and everything in its place.
Keep the workplace clean and tidy.
Establish consistent work practices to keep rationalizing resources and spaces, determining a standard to implement
Support and spread this mindset and behaviour across the organization
Following the 5 steps identified by the words allows a systematic, repeatable method to be implemented with a view to optimized working standards and enhanced operating performance.
Reduced time loss and improved cost-effectiveness
A proper organisation and transport system for your tools will allow you to have everything you need, where you need it, and within reach.
Enhanced quality and productivity
Standard equipment does not always cater to our needs. Creating your equipment on an item-by-item basis will allow you to fully adapt it to your requirements, which will result in improved reliability and performance.
Fewer work accidents
Most accidents occur while using tools. Arranging all necessary items so that they can be easily selected for use and removing all unnecessary items will allow you to minimize misuse and reduce hazards.
Reducing the number of defects and errors will allow you to avoid delays, optimize processes and improve the company’s results and efficiency.
