4. The 5 Why’s
• Repeat the question "Why?”
• Determine the root cause of a problem.
• Discover relationships between different root causes.
• Identify steps to prevent the problem from
reoccurring.
• Real root cause should always point to a process that
doesn’t work well
• most of the time people do not fail; processes do.

5. 5S Audit
• Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain
• A clean, well-organized workplace improves
efficiency and eliminates waste.
• Sustain is the most difficult step, requiring
maintaining the gains of process improvements
on a regular basis.
• Without sustainment, old habits resurface and
the workplace falls into disarray.
