# About the sequence of 5S

Should the 5S be sequenced? Can the 2,3, and 4 steps be led in parallel?

Thanks for your answer.

Steps 1, 2 and 3 actually seem to work together. Sort, straighten and shine commonly happen at the same time. I think the important sequence is (sort, straighten and shine) then (standardize and sustain). Get the workplace situated the way you want it, then create your standards. Once the standards are in place, begin your sustain and improvement habits.
