Short Interval Animations + digital visual management: what are the benefits?

Regular, short and action-oriented, AIC rituals are one of the pillars of lean management. Traditionally conducted on “paper” panels, they have a lot to gain by going digital.

La bonne information : une vision claire des enjeux

En allant collecter en temps réel les données de vos systèmes d’information, une solution de management visuel digital permet d’afficher vos indicateurs de performance (KPI) sous une forme visuelle claire, immédiatement actionnable, et constamment à jour. Lors de vos animations à intervalles courts, vos équipes bénéficient d’une vision limpide des enjeux du moment et du rôle et des responsabilités de chacun !

Les bonnes décisions : une résolution agile des problèmes

Le principe fondamental de l’AIC, c’est d’examiner ce qui s’est produit lors de l’intervalle de production précédent pour trouver les pistes de résolution à mettre en place dès le suivant. 

Le management visuel permet de rendre visibles les incidents et les évolutions des indicateurs de Sécurité, Qualité, Coût, Délai et Personnel (SQCDP), et de favoriser la communication et la coordination des équipes. Résultat ? Elles passent à l’action et les résolvent immédiatement, ou les “escaladent” rapidement au niveau hiérarchique supérieur.

With Pingflow, digitalize your AIC rituals in 4 steps

With Pingflow, you gain access to a digital visual management technology platform designed for industry. But that’s not all: because each production unit has its own specific features and challenges, we’ll help you design the wallboard that best suits your project and your teams’ needs.


Explore and frame

For us, a successful visual management project must be adapted to your context, and not “tack on” a ready-made solution. That’s why we start by setting up a working group with your teams to identify your needs and objectives, your current processes, and the specific challenges of your short-interval animation rituals.


Imagining and prototyping

Functional analysis, first wireframe, then prototype in your own style: this 2nd step enables you to adjust your users’ feedback in an agile way, until you obtain the ideal visual rendering for your future AICs.


Connect and integrate

Business applications, ERP, databases and files… We then connect your wallboards to your data sources, so that you can use them independently during your short-interval animations.


Launch, train, optimize

The final step: your AIC, QRQC or SQCDP wallboards are now in the hands of your teams, and your key users are trained in the administration of our platform. Our teams maintain your visual management system, and are ready to implement future developments.
