In this module we will take an in-depth look at 5S and 6S, establish the difference between them, and how to carry out 5S and 6S audits to establish a benchmark that will set the pace for future efficiency.

We will challenge you to develop what we call "5S/6S eyes". This allows us to see where the problems and issues are. We will steer you through the module with examples and short exercises to develop your all seeing 5S and 6S ability.
