Visual Management Boards are found at the heart of any progressive Lean organisation. They are essentially a communication tool, giving up to date, vital information to those who need to know it.
Professionally executed visual management boards have the power to drive continuous improvement and embed Lean in the company’s culture by achieving excellent employee engagement; poorly done, they become visual wallpaper … look attractive but go largely unnoticed!
Clarity visual management advisors are professionals with all the training and hands-on experience to advise on achieving effective visual management boards for your organisation. Contact us to start taking advantage of their support.
All Clarity visual management boards are bespoke which gives us great flexibility in manufacturing methods. We can advise whether a more traditional board or a printed magnetic overlay (sometimes known as a ‘skin’) is the best choice for your application.
This board has been carefully designed for maximum employee engagement, inviting suggestions for improvement and giving a gentle reminder of what ‘good’ looks like by the photos of each area that are to be shown in the magnetic frames!
A simple information board summarising the progress of Continuous Improvement projects. Dynamic changing visuals keep the team engaged with the progress being made.
We used a large magnetic frame for this Health and Safety Board to ensure the information can be easily updated.
An example of a board designed to be always positioned where it has the most impact … in this case where the maintenance is taking place. It uses a combination of colour, T-card systems and document holders to ensure that all the information needed for timely completion of the work is on hand.
This eye-catching board provides a quick summary of all aspects of performance, whilst the section below ensures it is on schedule. This is an excellent example of well positioned visual management – part of the action, not hidden away in a corner!
A problem-solving board designed to guide and promote a problem-solving mindset in view of winning high-quality improvement suggestions from the ‘coalface’
Our own Problem Solving Board which guides users through the problem-solving process.
This Performance Board shows an eye catching summary by means of the rev counters at the top of each section, before developing more detailed information below.
This Health and Safety board is particularly ideal for shift work, avoiding the situation where an incident is reported several times but never resolved! Areas, where there is a problem, are flagged up on the site map with a numbered magnet, and a corresponding magnet and the necessary corrective action are recorded in the gridded part of the board.
Staff board showing the management’s commitment to implement improvement suggested by the team.
