Six Sigma Principles

At its core, 5S is a methodology by which technology (engineering) and psychology (people) are optimized to achieve an efficient set of business processes. A business process is simply a set of steps, rules and practices required to complete any specific task. In this context, lubrication, like any other activity in a manufacturing plant, is just another process. It is the process of selecting, purchasing, storing, dispensing and applying the lubricant to the machine while maintaining (sustaining) the quality and cleanliness of the lubricant.
