Manufacturing in FORS MW is going to be more efficient than ever before!

FORS MW is lucky to have such an efficient and conscientious production manager as  Gary, who has ,within his short working period in FORS MW, done many improvements in the factory and made the manufacturing easier and more productive. 

His new project is called „6S Methodology“. This methodology is about how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. The name „5S“ stands for five Japanese words: SEIRI, SEITON, SEISO, SEIKETSU and SHITSUKE. There are five 5S phases: They can be translated from the Japanese as "sort", "set in order", "shine", "standardize", and "sustain". And we added 1S more, which stands for SAFETY!

Last week, we had our first training for people who work in the factory and warehouse. First training (1S) was about SORTING – removing unnecessary items and dispose of them properly. That would make work easier by eliminating obstacles. The results were very good and workers found it to be useful and understood the necessity  behind it.
