TOOLS FOR LEAN PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT: THE 5S SYSTEM, KANBAN

The article presents the methodology for introducing two tools of lean management into the activities of the university department: the 5S system and the Kanban board. The 5S system is a method used to create and maintain a high-performance workspace, including the organization of an employee’s workplace and standardization of routine office processes. Kanban is an information system that organizes the department as a whole, establishes links between different processes and coordinates the value stream in accordance with the needs of students. These tools have been tested at the Department of Management and Marketing of Belgorod State National Research University; these tools are fundamental in launching organizational changes necessary to introduce a new philosophy of work and management based on the principles of reducing all types of losses, involving department staff in a single value chain (educational products), continuous improvement of current activities and distribution of even load on employees. The work describes the procedure and content of the main activities for the introduction of the 5S System at the department; discusses the prospects for the use of Kanban boards, and provides some excerpts from the standard use of Kanban boards by the department staff.
