NASCAR Racing: A Model for Equipment Reliability & Teamwork (one day)

Workplace Organization Orderliness (two to four days)
Objective of this session: Setting the foundation for eliminating waste in the production and maintenance areas using the "5S Process" to improve performance as part of Lean Manufacturing, Lean Equipment Management, and/or TPM (Total Productive Maintenance)

1.     This session is designed for people currently working in, having responsibility for, or supporting existing production and/or maintenance shops, work areas, or cribs.  The planned outcome is to help the participants make improvements in their work areas in ways that make their work easier, improves service efficiency, and reduces operating costs in the area.

2.     The training session will provide opportunities for the participants to learn about the "5S system" for workplace organization and orderliness through a combined classroom activities, in-plant tours, and hands-on application of the basic techniques. Initial improvements will be made in some of the plant areas or shops as part of the learning exercises but they will not necessarily be "permanent improvements."

3.     Participants will have developed specific "5S Action Plans" for their areas by the end of the sessions.  These Action Plans should be reviewed with the appropriate supervision/management prior to implementation.
