Dix Manufacturing Group has recently installed a new sophisticated Visual Performance Measure display board which publishes meaningful outputs that have a direct impact on the company’s performance. Areas such as Production Efficiency, Quality, Labour Utilisation, Delivery, 5S and Safety are displayed in a bid to directly influence staff activities on the shop floor.
Other benefits witnessed from the installation of the VPM Display Board include:
- Easy to understand feedback on performance
- Can be used as a drive to encourage improvement as well as a platform for focused problem solving
- Provides timely and appropriate information that can trigger corrective actions at the source and hence limit non-conformances in production
- Provides clear performance indicators that lead to ownership and transparency in the workplace
