Bring your KPI board to life
You can reduce waste with visual management in a number of ways. For instance, add status dials to your waste reduction KPI board because they give instant reference. In other words, these are powerful for instantly expressing when action is needed. For example, mark when an action is “Done” with Green. Similarly, show actions “To do” as Red. Finally, use Amber for actions that are “In progress”. Therefore, choose Red/Green sliders, or Red/ Amber/ Green (RAG) status dials. These work because they make waste reduction status immediately visible. Most importantly, connect actions with each status and make the difference.

Above all, make targets visible. In other words, show clearly defined targets and connect them with actions. Firstly, set your targets on your KPI board. If your targets change then no problem. We make your board so it works just as you need it to. For example, use magnetic labels or number sets for quick updates. To clarify, we make whatever magnetic labels you need to do this.
Most importantly, track results because this is how progress happens. In other words, this is a necessary function of continuous improvement. Therefore, edit results over time. For example, use dry wipe pen or magnetic labels (or both) to edit your board. Consequently, we offer dry wipe and magnetic options for all boards.
