Chapter 03 - Visualization
Q: Can the production schedule results be viewed by the managers and at the production site?
A: The production scheduling results will be on display at the site in Gantt chart form. The work site checks and confirms the production schedule through the use of the Gantt chart, and then does the work in line with what the Gantt chart says. That allows us to get rid of work instruction sheets and to make the site as paperless as possible. The results of work performance can then be directly entered into the Gantt charts. From this we will know in advance such things as planning and performance data from the previous process and what kind of raw materials we will have to have ready. The production site is also where we can do the work of getting a firm handle on what will happen in the future and make the first move.
