    All the members of  Artech Board of Directors agreed that 5S is the good cure to all these problems.After the meeting of Board of directors, production team held a  production meeting about executing 5s management programme immediately.Every one began to study 5s management programme first before doing that.


5S is generally called 5 pillars of a visual workplace,including 5 steps:sort,straighten,shine,standardize,sustain.They are as following:

Sort: Sort out & separate that which is needed & not needed in the area.

Straighten: Arrange items that are needed so that they are ready & easy to use. Clearly identify locations for all items so that anyone can find them & return them once the task is completed.

Shine: Clean the workplace & equipment on a regular basis in order to maintain standards & identify defects.

Standardise: Revisit the first three of the 5S on a frequent basis and confirm the condition of the Gemba using standard procedures.

Sustain: Keep to the rules to maintain the standard & continue to improve every day.

      As a custom home furniture factory also custom hotel furniture factory,it is big challenge for us to implement 5S very well.Firstly,the furniture is not regular as other electronics products, they need very big space to store them.Second, for custom furniture factories, delivery time must be quick and on time.For custom furniture especially custom home furniture for Villa and sample house and ,it is not standard products, each products are different and unique with small quantity.That means, it can’t be standardized as smart phone production line does.For custom hotel furniture,it will be easier than Custom home furniture.That makes us start from the custom hotel furniture.

      Of course, at the beginning, we met some difficulties.Some workers were not willing to do this programme with the idea that that was a time wasting.Even some managers did not change there ideas.They insisted that would lead to the delay of products delay.Coincidently at that time, we have a very urgent order for custom lounge chair of one hotel project order.In view of this phenomenon,on one hand, we explained to them patiently,on the other hand, we launched a prize debating activity about 5S,which finally remove all the doubts about 5S implement.


     One month after implementing 5S management method,great changes took place in our factory workshop.

     1.Everything is in order.The material is well organized in the material warehouse.Half finished products are put in the right position inside the yellow line specially drawn for each workplace.Finished products is packed quickly once they entered into the finished products warehouse
