How is your production going? according to plan? ahead or behind? Are you winning or losing? What about those all-important KPI's you are all chasing, your on track with them right?
I bet to answer most of these questions you either looked up a file in your PC, opened a folder, checked a pile of paper somewhere on your desk or worse still just don't know.
What if we ask your production staff, will they know the answers?
How great would it be if you could tell within 30 seconds if you're winning or losing against your key objectives, moreover what if your production team were able to tell you how you were doing and updating the information for you? Sounds appealing, doesn't it? 

How about controlling where every production order on the floor is, without the need for a massive high tech computer system?

That's the great thing about visual management techniques, they can be as low tech as you need them to be. Even better than that, your own team can (and should) design them for you!

By doing this, they get to own the information and the updating and know how you are doing, before you do, that way they can make fast course adjustments to get everything back on track.

How many times have you walked the floor and thought, "That doesn't belong there" or someone complains that they cannot find a specific tool?
What if everything had a place and if it wasn't there it screamed out to everyone, "Hey! I'm not where I should be!"
What if the plant was set up so you could only do it right? it's just not possible to do it wrong without you or the next person noticing that something isn't right?
Many Caps Consulting can help get you started quickly on the road to visual management, by engaging your team and sharing the key information on what drives the business they can start choosing the right metrics for you and owning them, and you, well you can go and run the business.
