Were you aware that Signs Express (Peterborough), can design, manufacture, produce and install both visual management tools such as key performance Indicator (KPI) boards and Shadow boards?
If you are involved in lean manufacturing or Kaizen, visual management boards are essential to the smooth running and continuous improvement of your business.
KPI’s are fantastic for helping you keep track of your set goals and objectives. The use of a KPI board can help organisations keep on top of different departmental objectives without losing site of the bigger picture. They are a brilliant way of analysing achievements and progress against targets.
Lean manufacturing boards are also incredibly versatile. They can be used for much more than just tracking business goals. They’re perfect for production centres where live updates can be made to work coming in and going out of a busy unit or studio and as they are whiteboards, they’re easy to update and amend and help keep everyone informed of progress and job stats.
Mobile and personalised to your specific needs, visual management tools are also ideal for use as accident and waste reduction aids within your manufacturing business and are essential to effective lean management.
Another useful business tool is a shadow board. In fact, we’d go as far as to say that if you’re working in an environment which uses lots of equipment, a shadow board is a must have. Tools and materials used every day in the workplace can be easily misplaced, causing delay to your productive team. A shadow board ensures that when a piece of equipment is used there is a clearly marked place to store it. These boards mimic the shape of the item with a silhouette, making it obvious if anything is missing at the end of the day and guaranteeing your staff will always know where that ever important tool is!
Please do get in touch if you would like more information on how a visual management tool or a shadow board can help your business. We’d welcome the opportunity to discuss the options with you and explain in more detail the benefits of these office work aids.
