This start from 5 japanese words:
Seiri
Seiton
Seiso
Seiketsu
Shitsuke
Even if it is cool in japanese :-),

I prefer to remember them in English.

The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order.

Sort
Eliminate all unnecessary tools, parts.
Go through all tools, materials, and so forth in the plant and work area.
Keep only essential items and eliminate what is not required, prioritizing things per requirements and keeping them in easily-accessible places.
Everything else is stored or discarded.

Set in Order
Arrange the work, workers, equipment, parts, and instructions.
In such a way that the work flows free of waste through the value added tasks with a division of labor necessary to meet demand.

Shine
Clean the workspace and all equipment, and keep it clean, tidy and organized.
At the end of each shift, clean the work area and be sure everything is restored to its place.
This step ensures that the workstation is ready for the next user and that order is sustained.

Standardize
Ensure uniform procedures and setups throughout the operation.
Promote interchangeability.

Sustain
Make it a way of life.
This means commitment.
Ensure disciplined adherence to rules and procedures of 5S to prevent backsliding.

Using this 5S Methodology and the tips based on a real experience you will get extraordinary results.
