5S methodology is widely known in the manufacturing industry. It is now being applied to a wide variety of industries including health care, education, and government. Who would say that it cannot be done in an MRO industry? Visual management and 5S can be particularly beneficial in an MRO business because a frantic search for tools and parts to service an aircraft can have dire consequences up to millions of dollars lost. Although the origins of 5S methodology are in manufacturing, Aplus will use this proven methodology to continuously improve the services we have as an aircraft maintenance provider.
Aplus created its own 5S program that fits on its setting. A program that benefits not just the organization but its people as well. A 5S Committee was formed to spearhead 5S continuous learning, promotional campaign and evaluation to ensure sustainability.
This is just the beginning, for Aplus is committed to operational excellence and innovation aligned to our vision to be the home of world class total aircraft maintenance solution in Asia-Pacific.
