Brady Corporation Introduces Lean Communication Boards for Manufacturers
Production control boards help lean manufacturers promote visual factory management Milwaukee, WI - Brady Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: BRC), a global leader in lean manufacturing and visual workplace solutions, has introduced a new line of visual display boards that enhance lean communication and information sharing between manufacturing management, employees and departments. Available in a variety of sizes and styles, Brady's visual display boards are an economical and professional-looking solution for lean manufacturing communication and visual factory management. Visual display boards advance success of lean initiatives
The visual display boards help lean manufacturers track key performance indicators, report kaizen results and awards, and notify employees about future audits, kaizen blitzes and other lean events. The lean boards can serve as production control boards or production scoreboards and display schedules, 5S duties and employee assignments. Lean manufacturers have also found the visual display boards to be ideal for recording improvement ideas, maintenance requests and employee feedback on the company's lean initiatives. Before Brady's visual display boards, lean manufacturing leaders had to purchase large, costly displays or create makeshift lean boards with standard corkboards and whiteboards. The boards tended to look disorganized and unprofessional, severely limiting the credibility and effectiveness of the information being displayed. Unlike office corkboards and bulletin boards, Brady's visual display boards are specifically designed to endure harsh operating environments. The boards will not warp, crack or fade, ensuring effective lean communications and information sharing on the shop floor. Economically priced for companies of all sizes, Brady's visual display boards give manufacturers a reliable space for implementing their lean initiatives. Available in blue or grey, the visual display boards can be purchased in two different sizes -with 4 information panels or 6 information panels. The lean boards can be mounted to a wall, ceiling or floor stand, and customers can outfit the boards with document pockets for displaying printouts or dry erase panels for handwritten information sharing. Brady also offers custom visual display boards with pre-printed signs, headings, logos and titles. Brady Corporation offers online drawing of visual display boards
