How many S's 5s

Amtech has strived to bring our customers the highest quality possible, we have developed an Advanced Quality Management System, along with that we have also taken the initiative of 5S

Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, & Sustain.  What does this all mean?  

Amtech has taken on the initiative to put into place 5s practices, we want to make our production facility Clean and Beautiful, and at the same time promote safety and quality.

The 5s's:

Sort - Sort out and seperate that which is needed in the area.

Straighten - Arrange items that are needed so that tye are ready and easy to use.  Cleary identify locations for all items so that anyone can find and return them once the task is completed.

Shine - Clean the workplace and equipment on a regular basis in order to mantin standards and identify defects

Standardize - Revist the first three of 5s on a frequent basis and confirm the condition of them by using standard procedures

Sustain - Keep to the rules to maintino the standard and continue to improve every day!

 

 

In 5s results come from small changes over time, so here are some pictures of improvements we have started to make:

 

With 5S innitiative in place, we continue to improve ourselves and strive to bring our customers the greatest quality we can deliver.
