AME is hosting a one day workshop on Creating Visual Management Systems. Implementing visual management techniques is an essential component of any Lean Enterprise. It is absolutely critical to long term sustainability. Much more than simply posting process related metrics, an effective visual management system (VMS) should be driving the daily management of a function or department – both manufacturing and non-manufacturing alike. Even more important it should drive continuous improvement.
This full-day session will review the key elements of a comprehensive visual management system, providing examples from production, office and service environments. Also to be covered will be the manner by which the VMS will be used by leaders as part of Leader Standard Work. Participants will have the opportunity to design their own VMS that they can take back to their organizations. Multiple attendees from the same organization are encouraged to attend so that they can work together to complete the exercise.
