The 5 E’s Great, Lean Visuals Have In Common

In today's world where manufacturing has turned into a truly global industry spanning over multiple time zones with multiple languages and cultures, language can prove to be a stumbling block for communication and hence success. The expression “a picture is worth a thousand words” has never had more practical meaning than today. Visuals can actually help us understand complex problems faster than just texts or numbers.
Let us look at what goes in the making of a great visual:
• Easy to Setup: In a learn environment where stress is imposed on minimizing waste it is of prime importance that the time and resources needed to setup, a visual is minimized.
• Easy to See: Even before we get down to the task of analyzing the graphs what must be kept in mind is that the graphs should be visible. And by visibility we also broadly mean that the visuals should be placed at strategically at the “right place”.
• Easy to Maintain: Information posted via a visual must be constantly updated and it would be more cost efficient if every consequent update does not render the previous version as unusable.
• Easy to Use: The visuals should be designed in such a way that everyone is able to use the information displayed- so that no special training is needed to read the information shown.
• Easy to Understand: Visual symbols can work great for communication only if the information displayed is readily usable for analysis. If further processing of data has to be done before they can be used, it greatly diminishes its functionality.
