Visual Scheduling & Displays


Management-by-Sight is the glue that holds your operations together as you transition from a traditional workplace to the new excellence. Visual scheduling and displays are indispensable to that process.

A Visual Display holds many layers of information in a single, interactive format that allows us to independently understand the status of a situation at-a-glance, make sound decisions, and confidently take correct, timely action—based solely on the information on the display. (Visual scheduling and production control boards are also included in visual displays.)

Workplace information can change quickly and often—schedules, customer requirements, engineering specifications, operational methods, tooling and fixtures needs, material location, and thousands of other details on which daily life of the enterprise depends.

Low-tech, high impact visual displays offer rapid, accurate updates that share information so vital adjustments can be made, in real-time. Displays are an extraordinary solution to chronic, costly, and complex information deficiencies in the workplace, pinpointing where and how loss is happening. For companies that are transitioning from traditional to excellent, visual displays are unsurpassed in their usefulness.

They are the glue that holds your company together while you transform your value stream.

"This workshop transformed my thinking about what scheduling boards can do—and are supposed to do. Now I know how to get ready for pull. Now I can solve our scheduling problems before automating them. This workshop is superb! And all hands-on!"
