Do you have excessive downtime? Are quality
problems tied to machine and operator performance
plaguing your planning? Do your changeovers eat up
production time? The Visual Machine® is the
solution to these challenges and more.
Put an end to searching for tools, people, work
orders, blueprints, maintenance, supervisors, and
materials. Make them all available at-a-glance
through machine visuality: safety and performance
data and procedures, ISO requirements, metrics,
lubrication effectiveness, standards of usage—as
well as preventive maintenance activities and
schedules. Imbed meaning and right action into
your equipment through visual devices. Let the
In this two-day, hands-on workshop, learn how to
imbed vital machine and operator performance into
your equipment, layer by layer.
First learn by listening: Listen as the instructor shares the building blocks of
visual thinking. Learn the logic of visuality so you can
identify your need to know and need to share. Understand
how to segment machine functions into layers of visual
information sharing. Learn the language of visual
thinking and maximize your machine utilization.
Then learn by doing: Go to the production floor and learn to track down motion
(moving without) in its numerous and nearly invisible
forms—and uncover the missing information that triggers them.
Learn, hands-on, to re-assess chronic problems into what they
really are: raging deficits information.
Create visual solutions: Learn to develop visual devices that render your
equipment self-explaining so they can become
self-regulating—along with the operators that run them.
Imbed vital machine information into the landscape of the
Reflect and Plan: Scale the process and benefits you just experienced for your
