Work That Makes Sense: Operator-Led Visuality
CREATING AND SUSTAINING VISUALITY ON THE VALUE-ADD LEVEL
At last! A book that shows you how to get your value-add associates engaged, involved, and inventive. Work That Makes Sense (WTMS) is a complete implementation manual that teaches you how to train, implement, coach, and support operators so your 5S not only lasts but it grows and becomes selfsustaining.
“Gwendolyn Galsworth, the world’s foremost visual workplace expert, has not just written a fine
book about making operations visual, she—alone amongst writers on this topic—has detailed what it takes to make that a system. Read Work That Makes Sense!”
Richard Schonberger, author: Best Practices in Lean, Let’s Fix It!, World Class Manufacturing
Based on more than 30 years in the field, Dr. Galsworth provides the step-by-step method, the tools, the stories, and hundreds of full-color examples of visual devices that front-line associates (the real hands-on experts in your company) need to understand what a visual workplace is, why it’s important to their daily work, and how to create one. Bonus material spells out sixteen key tasks for leaders so they can pro-actively coach and support a WTMS conversion.
