Saturday was a 5S Activity Day for Kolej Vokasional Seri manjung. Some of you may be wondering what 5S System is, right?
This system orginated in Japan and is a list of 5 words starting with 'S' in Japanese.
The translation is:
Separating [Seiri]
Sorting [Seiton]
Shine/Sweeping [Seiso]
Standardise [Seiketsu]
Sustaining [Shitsuke]

Each task should not be isolated from the other. All 5S make for a workplace to be efficient, lean and safe.
By applying the 5S everything has a place, time is not wasted by looking fro items or documents.

During the 5S Activity on Saturday, the college campus was divided into a few zones and I was the leader of the zone covering the resource centre, the containers and the printing room.

This is the before picture in the storeroom where all the things were haphazardly arranged.
After sorting out the unwanted stuff and throwing them away, the students rearranged the remaining items neatly. See the difference in the picture above.

Thanks to Emelia, the water feature area looks much neater and nicer.
