Knowing is seeing!
Can you affect the activities of your company that you do not know about? Probably not. The advantage of visualization is that you can respond very quickly to any waste that occur in your working processes. It is important to visualize all problems.
An example of visual management used to envision your processes:
What can be visualized:
- Productivity gap (comparison of the desired output and the actual achievement)
- The performance of workers on the production line (individually)
- OEE – overall equipment effectiveness
- Downtime (technical, organizational)
- Number of produced NIO parts (unacceptable parts or defects…)
- Stock reserves
- Production in process
- Organization of work stations (5S standards, working procedures, quality standards, and the like)
- Safety rules
- Information for employees (news, indicators of work stations, problems of work stations - quality, claims)
- and others
