Distinguishing between necessary and unnecessary things, and getting ride of what you need.
The practice of orderly storage so the right item can be picked efficiently (without waste) at the right time, easy to access for everyone. A place for everything and everything in its place.
Create a clean work-site without garbage, dirt and dust, so problems can be more easily identified (leaks, spills, excess, damage, etc)
Setting up standards for a neat, clean, workplace.
Implementing behaviours and habits to maintain the established standards over the long term, and making the workplace organization the key to managing the process for success.
