SCHOTT uses magnetic closure organizers and magnetic rigid holders to post information on communication boards through the facility. StoreSMART products allow SCHOTT to post information easily by simply sliding sheets in and out of the given sleeves. The transparent plastic sleeves offer a convenient way for employees to write notes with dry erase marker. In addition, the magnetic backs make it easier to change on a board depending on what the demands.

I recently purchased magnetic green, red and yellow smiley faces. I received them and your catalog, I saw the magnetic tape and it would be great to use with our lean boards we are making.
Gordon Sturm from Mirion Technologies
We use the face magnets to identify levels of training. We list the machines and employees. Red means not trained. Yellow in progress. Green means fully trained. They're used on a 4' x 8' board for Job distributions.

We're really big on process improvement here. There's a lot of focus around Tier Leveled meetings and 5S Projects, all of which require us to display data on magnetic white boards where we need the ability to update information daily. Our site leader is adamant about using these for our Executive level meetings because he believes the quality is so much better than others that we've seen, so I knew I wanted to order the same thing for my team's display. Great Quality!

Mark Graban's Lean Blog focused at first on Lean Management in the manufacturing world, but focused more on healthcare over time after Mark moved into that industry in late 2005.
Lean Blog covers a number of themes about lean that are universal, regardless of industry. This blog led to Mark's Shingo Award-winning book Lean Hospitals: Improving Quality, Patient Safety, and Employee Engagement.
