Remember the story of the Japanese factory achieved zero error at quality checking points with just 2 footprints and a red dot?
Quality checking has always been a tough point in the production line, given its strict requirements on precision. Factories around the world have been trying many ways by providing extensive trainings to their workers, printing detailed instructions for them on how to screen for errors, but yet errors resulted.
Then, one Japanese factory cracked the code. They simply drew a pair of footprints on the floor and a red dot on the wall. Every worker instinctively stood on them and looked up towards the red dot where the meters were. They achieved zero error with such simple yet high visual tools.
This week, let’s remember to use visual instructions of the expected process & outcome to make things more intuitive. I realize that it is hard…I’m still struggling to make the Monday learnings visual!
