Now that we are aware of types of visual and aural signals reaching out to us, we need to put them to good use in creating a lean, clean information channel to rapidly convey just the right information and in just the right way throughout the value stream.
Team Leaders and Managers learn the effective ways of communicating to their team members the rules of expected behavior by using simple visual cues to guide everyday activities using natural and non threatening methods.
Using a 5S technique, for instance, places tape around the space used by the waste basket, and labeling it such, so everyone from the cleaning person to the workers in the area know that is the exact location the basket goes back if it ever gets moved. Tool outlines on a tool rack tells the technician exactly where to put that tool back when done.
The Deluxe and Deluxe-Plus kits and the Grand Simulation Package each contain bonus presentations on Visual Systems, Visual Communication and 5-S Techniques that form the basis for visual control.
