How to Reduce Waste with Visual Management

Firstly, make your purpose clear: reduce waste. Secondly, take steps to tackle every form of waste. In other words, audit your workplace purely in terms of waste reduction. Then, identify the areas where you need to take action. Finally, use visual management boards to set, monitor and meet waste reduction targets. Above all, take action everyday to reduce waste.

We understand how important reducing waste is in your working environment.  We also know how to reduce waste with visual management. As a result, we offer visual management  and KPI (Key Performance Indicator boards) to support you.

How to Reduce Waste with Visual Management using a KPI board

With our help, make a waste reduction KPI (key performance indicator) board . Firstly, use it for instant visual reference. Secondly, use it to track performance. This works because it offers clear visual targets and action points. This is an essential visual management tool for any progressive or lean environment because it monitors and drives progress.

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.

Further ideas for how to reduce waste with visual management

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.

Other options to reduce waste with visual management

 So far we have covered KPI boards, which work very well. However, there are many other visual management display options. Firstly, wall visuals are large and impactful. Secondly, floor markings are highly effective, particularly for segregation. Furthermore, use labels and a range of other accessories to full advantage. For example, mark your waste bin with your waste reduction target. Alternatively, use whiteboard overlays. These work because you make an existing magnetic whiteboard is a visual management display to reduce waste.
