  • Measure Results

  • Confirming New StateTargetRealise Floor Space Utilization of 7500Implement new tooling methods to realise cost saving of 2250Improve 5S score by 300%Confirm / re-write / amend SOP to reflect the requirements to maintain new state

    OutcomeFloor space realised and now re-deployed as a packaging and quarantine areaNew tooling implemented to realise annual cost saving5S score improved by 1600%Two new SOPs created, issued and displayed to help Standardise & Sustain 5S improvements
