Every company's pursuit of quality improvement must begin with the basics, namely the 5S's.

A textile unit was selected to apply these concepts. The existing processes were studied by keeping in mind the 5S's concept. The photographs were taken to analyze each and every section. This helped in designing the 5S's audit form. Based on audit report the improvements in needed sections were carried out.
