Purpose- This study examines how 5S affects a Pakistani manufacturing company’s operation. The investigation was quantitative. A Pakistani electrical manufacturer received the poll. At least 180 replies were collected from 200 samples.

Methodology-This study investigated hypotheses from a conceptual model of the 5S concept and productivity using partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM). The statistics showed that 5S improved the organization's productivity.

Results-The results also demonstrated that the 5S technique increased role productivity and organization success. Successfully applying 5S can boost company productivity. Productivity increases using the 5S method—Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. Each of the five independent variables (5S variables) significantly affected the dependent variable prediction.

Implication-The study found that implementing 5S in an organization should be seen as a full productivity system. Productivity does not increase with 5S. However, it encourages lean manufacturing, Six Sigma, Total Productive Maintenance, and Kaizen, which boosts company productivity.
