5S Methodology: literature review and implementation analysis. (2022). Journal of Scientific and Technological Research Industrial, 3(2), 47-55.


The present research work was developed by performing a systematic review in the last 7 years in this way, by reading it can be seen that there are problems in the different companies with the classification, order, cleaning, standardization and maintaining discipline among their workers, for this reason it is necessary to publicize the implementation of the 5S methodology, with its application the companies will have greater benefits, there is also lean manufacturing and kaizen that can also be implemented to have greater economic benefits, the main objective is to determine how the implementation of the 5S methodology will improve the companies, in turn their specific objectives define how the application of the 5S will increase productivity and determine the results that are related to the application of the 5S methodology, having as a conclusion the achievement of productivity after implementation generated a noticeable improvement, followed of each of the steps to achieve the continuous improvement of the 5S and therefore its effectiveness is considered.
