Contents: This publication is a professional quality DVD video covering Visual Factory Management & Control (VFM) topics, in particular signaling solutions, industrial switches, push button solutions, single & multi status indicators, control lights, panel mount alarms, LED round beacons, stack lights, panelview and industrial displays, handheld devices, PDAs, hazardous location signaling, industrial electronic horns, dual-circuit panel alarms, light curtains, safety relays, interlock switches, patented, enhanced E-stop safety self monitoring industrial switches & contact blocks, and others. VFM is an integrated set of methods and technologies for the purpose of reducing waste at all levels. The key to the success of VFM is the expert implementation of 'visual controls', making information truly visible and clear for everyone. The fundamental purpose of visual controls is to help employees to improve their processes, understand their roles, and to contribute to the success of the corporation, whilst reducing waste at all levels. This can be achieved by creating up-to-date information in a format everyone can easily absorb, as and when, and where they need it. When designing / selecting and deploying visual controls, the cross-functional team in charge should identify devices / machines, layouts and workstations / work-cells that need to be modified, or re-arranged, operators / associates that need training, material feeders and locations that need to be changed, signs, charts, score-boards, lights, color coded interactive visual displays that need to be designed and implemented, safety warnings that need to be designed, and others. VFM system design typically begins by following an integrated process, requirements, and risk analysis method, embedded into a statistical analysis and multimedia framework.
