Production Machine & Enterprises, a job shop in Madison, Wisconsin, produced this internal training video to teach all incoming new employees about 5S.

The video is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, it’s a useful introduction to 5S—including “before” and “after” photos that show what a successful transition to 5S looks like.

Second, the video illustrates what kind of training resources it’s possible for even a small shop to develop using basic video equipment and software.
