PFU Board – a system

This PFU Board is more than just a visual display. Certainly, it stands out and grabs attention. However, it also facilitates A Problem Follow Up system. This works because of the ease to make updates. In other words, write up the problem, log the cause and share the countermeasure. Likewise, assign responsibility for resolving problems. In this case, the logging of issues and countermeasures relates to the supply chain.

PFU Board – why it works

Most importantly, this PFU board displays exactly the information and documents this client needs. Above all, each document shows exactly the details this client requires. Furthermore this PFU system works for this client’s operations and supply chain. This is because we custom make the board and related document holders. These documents fit perfectly on this PFU Board. They work because they neatly hold the documents. Likewise, they keep documents safe and tidy. 

Moreover, moving documents between the ‘in progress’, ‘overdue’ and ‘escalate’ columns is quick and simple. In conclusion, this is Problem Follow Up in action and prompts action to resolve issues as efficiently as possible. 

In short, this custom PFU board with magnetic document holders is an excellent visual management tool. It facilitates easy updating and monitoring of both concerns and countermeasures. Likewise, it supports of continuous improvement.

Our Approach

We create visual management boards everyday. As a result we have plenty of experience. We work for organisations in food production, the power industry, national rail, pharmaceuticals, education, healthcare, packaging and distribution. Our team works with a simple idea or sketch and creates a professionally designed layout. This is then turned into a highly functional visual management board. We offer customised options because we want to create the perfect board for you. So, here are a few examples. We can add magnetic areas or a dry-wipe finish (for use with whiteboard pens). Furthermore, you can choose Red/Green sliders or R.A.G. (Red, Amber, Green) status dials so you can quickly and visually update your board. These are just a few examples of the ways in which our boards can be tailored to meet your needs. You may also be interested in  whiteboard overlays that can be used on top of an existing magnetic board.
