Visual Management

Techniques for Creating a Visual Workplace



Visual management is an integral part of a Lean management system. Visual management uses displays, metrics and controls to help establish and maintain continuous flow, and giving everyone a view of the work along the value stream. It includes a set of techniques that make operation standards visible so that people can follow them more easily. These techniques expose waste so that it can be prevented and eliminated.

In this Visual Management PPT training presentation, you will learn various types of visual management which can be applied to the workplace or office. It includes many examples and common visual tools such as red-tagging, poka-yoke (mistake-proofing), andons, activity boards, A3 storyboards, standard work, kanbans, one-point lessons and takt time versus cycle time.
