Many companies use whiteboards in the production area to show Short Interval Control, a very useful, but time-consuming practice and, therefore, frequently uncompleted.
Our real-time SIC solution shows analysed results broken down into hours, typically displayed on large 50" screens in stainless steel, waterproof housings across the production facility.
Simple graphics have the effect of making production performance immediately visible to operator and managers alike and, at the same time, give operators very visible new goals to aim for, thereby encouraging ongoing improvements in production output.
The simplest way is often the most effective, to make operational personnel aware whether performance is improving or deteriorating. Some boards even encourage friendly competition between productions lines to improve performance.
