Managers See the Step-by-step Do-Done Progress of their Lean Initiative Projects with These New StepTracker Magnetic Whiteboards
Macedon, NY - Teams who focus on productivity, process, quality, 5S and other lean manufacturing improvements use the new Do-Done StepTracker whiteboard as a rallying point for project management coordination. "We use the Do-Done board to display the current status of our company-wide Lean initiatives. Each of our production cells and departments is listed down the side and the milestones are along the top. As we start a project, the squares are filled with yellow circles. Turning the magnets over to display green shows completion and is a source of pride for team members; you can really see the progress we've made. It also reconfirms the fact that we're committed to this and that there is still work left to be done." Lean Coordinator Colombus, GA.
"Our customers keep coming up with new ways to use the StepTracker; product development, process improvement and lean projects are just a few." says Christian Krapf, spokesperson for Magnatag "The boards are a focal point for project participants. The easy to use Flip-Over Do-Done magnets show the status of each project as is moves toward completion. You can clearly see what's done and where things are held up" continued Krapf. "Project headings are customized as the boards are ordered online. The Flip-Over Do-Done magnets in 5 colors let you color code and fine-tune actions and status. Kits also include additional magnetic cardholders with printable inserts for changing project step and other headings as needed."
