Not only does 5S promote organizing spaces in the workplace, but it promotes a culture of efficiency and productivity.
This infographic breaks down each step in the 5S process and guides you through the organization of materials in a logical way, creating a space that is easier to work in, and sustaining the efforts. Whether you’re working in a large office building or a small manufacturing facility, the 5S framework can be applied to virtually any workplace.

This infographic submission shares various details of the "5S" workplace organization method. The title is "5S is the Foundation of the Lean Philosophy," and while that may be the takeaway of the infographic, it might not be the strongest option. Something along the lines of "What Is The 5S Method To Workplace Organization" could be more appropriate to what is communicated throughout. The design here is consistent throughout, relying primarily on character/scene illustration with a handful of icons. While there is likely a defined color palette, by reducing the number of colors used, it can give the design a sleeker, refined feel. The overall content is a good length, specifically where it explains each of the 5 steps. Overall, we give this a B.
