Visual management: how to drive exceptional business results
Visual boards: the enterprise under control
At Digitalsoft, we believe in a mission-based operating system that combines end-to-end digital planning and execution. With our customer’s business outcome and goals in mind, our real-time digital applications platform uses Visual Management to achieve the following.
- Real-time availability management for markets, customer, and channels
- Manufacturing control & machine downtime
- Employee empowerment on the shop floor and warehouse
- Early issue detection and rapid problem solving
- Supporting Lean Operations through e.g. operational KPI dashboards (safety-quality-delivery-inventory-productivity) and promoting root cause analysis and corrective action planning
- Improving execution to plan with line output screens
The problems solved by visual management
Lack of visibility in operations means issues can often go undetected. Not having real-time access to the data and actionable-insights, lead companies to remain stuck in sequential-planning mode.
So how to go beyond? Go ‘Visual’! Visual information is processed 60’000 x faster than text. An average person remembers 20% of what they read, and 40% of what they see.
Finally, communicating visually is the most intuitive element of lean concept deployment. It enables anyone entering the shop floor to see and understand what’s going on in a glance. It helps management to focus their support where it really makes a difference!
