Laboratory Management

5S Consulting

Adopting the 5S can result in gains of productivity, reduced costs, and increased safety.

However, adopting the 5S can be challenging as it often requires a change of corporate culture.
5S is a workplace organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri (整理), seiton (整頓), seisō (清掃), seiketsu (清潔), and shitsuke (). These have been translated as “Sort”, “Set In order”, “Shine”, “Standardize” and “Sustain”. The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. The decision-making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization, which builds understanding among employees of how they should do the work.
GenoFAB’s 5S Consulting Services help clients to make the most of their laboratory spaces for more efficient work.

The GenoFAB Difference


We use custom technology solutions to support the 5S rollout and to sustain the 5S beyond the rollout. 


Clients perform the transition on their own schedule rather on the consultant schedule. 


Our original cost structure makes it easier on the client cash flow than expensive consulting fees.
