K is a printing company, the main job of packaging corrugated boxes, screen printing and traditional offset printing business. 2 years ago, the company launched a “Print Management Information System”, in the highly competitive printing market, did play a significant role. At this time, general manager of Mr. Hou began his sights on the field of digital printing.
To accept the challenges 5S K Corporation and a Hong Kong company to discuss the joint venture, the company introduced at the K new digital printing equipment and processes, while transforming the company’s printing information system.
However, a joint venture with Hong Kong talks have not gone smoothly. The other side of the K’s factory management, and introduced many in HOU total seems too “picky” comments: such as warehouses and workshops in the paper, ink, tool, placed neatly enough; the ground is not enough clean, press the oil a little more “unbearable”; workers overalls also “unsatisfactory” … …
Later, in the joint venture terms, the investors insisted on the “introduction of modern manufacturing enterprises 5S-site management method”, as a necessary condition, written into the contract text.
Just the beginning, Hou that the sum of the Hong Kong company’s management a little “fuss.” “Is not doing the health, environmental Gaode beautiful number,” Hou always feel these things too “insignificant”, and modern management, information management is simply detached.

These five words and the meaning of the expression sounds very simple. At first, we take exception.
Few days later, the party sent to guide the implementation of 5S, Mr. Mak, through field investigation, with plenty of on-site photographs and investigative materials, so that K’s leadership and staff, received a strong shock.
Mak found that printing shop on the ground, always stacked with different types of paper, which are now used, but also “do not know who moved here to”; waste ink and removed to the roller tube, wire , lying in a corner shop, covered with greasy; workers to use the tools are not visible markers, to find a suitable tool may cost much trouble.
Warehouse situation no better.
Stack of paper, ink, and accessories on the shelves and shelves of finished products only one among the narrow, there is no separation channel, number and the goods do not conform is common.
