Dilbert Cartoon About 5S

Dilbert Comic Strip Archive –

Dilbert has mentioned lean concepts before (I remember a cartoon that mentioned “Just In Time” delivery), but I was surprised to see a mention of “5S” last Friday. I guess 5S is getting more popular, or maybe more notorious? Most “office 5S” implementations I’ve seen have really just terrorized engineers. I see more value in doing 5S for shared work areas more so than for individual offices, but that’s me.
