God created everything with order. Think about the order of planetary motion, sunrises, colors in a rainbow, plant cells, musical notes, mathematical precision in creation and more (Genesis 1). God's word also teaches us order in family, church, and civil government (Hebrews 11:3, Ephesians 4:10, Romans 13).
We are created in the image of God, who evidently likes order, and most of us like order too. Order helps us accomplish more in less time and think clearly, which is also why we study logic.
Some people are more naturally inclined to keep order in their desks, rooms, houses and businesses, but we all have the tendency to neglect order, which can be a problem in most businesses.
The Japanese 5S system was developed to be a very simple procedure to help factories and offices operate efficiently by eliminating clutter, distractions and wasted time. This is one of many aspects of what is called lean manufacturing, which is a way of keeping order in business.
Bartlett Farm is formally implementing the 5S system towards improving the efficiency and quality of its operations. These ideas are helpful to anyone who wants to get more done in less time. As the aquaponics business develops in Wickenburg, keeping the 5S ideas in mind will save time and make the working environment more pleasant.
You will also be a more valuable employee if you implement one or more of these ideas in your current job or business or home activities. Just image being able to find anything withing 30 seconds and not having any clutter.
