WHY 5S AT BAKKER BEDRIJFSWAGENS
We started at Bakker Bedrijfswagens with an improvement procedure from our CI-Company. Soon it became clear that a lot of time is lost in the workshop searching for tools and materials. The reason for this was that almost nothing had a fixed place and left tools and materials lying around everywhere. This led to great frustration on the part of the mechanics and with the additional consequence that material and tools were more likely to be damaged. Time to change this with our 5S procedure.
THE 5S ROLL-OUT
We worked 2 intensive days with our 5S roll-out together with all mechanics and colleagues within Bakker. An alternation between theory and implementation in practice, so that all 5 S's were discussed.
