Research methods are: analysis of enterprise data, employee opinion survey, participation in audits. One of the ways to maintain a proper level of order and cleanliness according to the 5S method in the factory is to confirm compliance by conducting an audit. Inspections are carried out on two levels. One of them is an internal audit, which is carried out by a foreman who works at a given hall.
