The Impact of Visual Management Tools on Resource Management


The use of visual management has been evolving and effectively implemented in manufacturing and services organizations. It serves as the key sustaining force for many popular lean techniques including 5S, standard work and total productive maintenance. In order to facilitate the understanding of how Visual Management tools could be implemented into, literally, any company and how it is necessary to support the organization to reach its goal, this paper aims to present a few visual management tools benefits and how they could be implemented. The necessity of research opportunities is identified, as well as the lack of literature focused on Visual Management tools outside production sites.
Key-words: Visual Management; Functions, Services.
