Visual Control & Point-of-Use Systems


In order to respond quickly to marketplace demands with flexible production set-ups and zero defect standards, managers and workers alike must be able to realize at a glance what is going on in their factories. Visual control systems bring total alignment to common objectives and will help everyone in the factory to become involved in monitoring – and actively supporting - corporate objectives throughout the manufacturing process.

There are two types of visual applications in a factory: displays and controls. A visual display relates information and data to employees in the area while a visual control is intended to actually control or guide the action of area group members. This program will discuss the 10 steps in setting visual control systems including Process and delivery controls, Quality controls, Work controls, Equipment and tools controls, Objects controls and Improvement targets controls. 

Suitable for: Factory and production managers, IT personnel, maintenance personnel, industrial engineers
