Yesterday's game was designed to illustrate the concepts of 5-S, fixing the workplace so it is conducive to easy acquisition or use of needed supplies by removing extraneous materials, organizing according to how often they are used, keeping the workplace neat, reducing variation across the institution, and ensuring that these practices are persistent. The terms used to describe these steps are: sorting, setting in order, shining, standardizing, and sustaining.

round two, written instructions are provided, and things improve a bit. In round three, a picture is provided along with the written instructions and there are high quality, consistent results (as seen below).
