Three years into the Lean Six Sigma deployment at Ball Corporation (the company known for its glass canning jars), the process improvement team began a visual factory initiative. This initiative was intended to develop visual signs on plant floors that not only instruct employees about where to focus their energies, but also depict the health of the company. These visual cues would be the driving force behind Yellow, Green and Black Belt projects. They should not only point to improvement opportunities but also highlight the success of completed improvements. Armed with an idea to build the ultimate dashboard, the team began.
