Train Maintenance Shadow Boards

Train Maintenance Visual Tool Storage.

It was great to visit Northern Rail Newton Heath train maintenance depot (TMD) yesterday and see the small part our bespoke Lean Shadow Boards are playing in ensuring tooling and equipment is always to hand for Train Maintenance and Exams.

We are looking forward to continuing to work with Northern as they begin work in their new Shed for the new CAF stock they are introducing. 

VMT supply Lean Visual Tool Storage solutions for tooling and equipment to ensure no time is wasted searching for equipment or parts.

VMT now offer our Lean Printed Visual Management Boards with the option to be supplied backlit. Backlighting the boards helps to-
-Draw attention to important company information.

-Make a showcase of Lean Visual Management.

Salute the NHS

VMT Supporting Salute the NHS.

VMT have recently been doing a very small part in supporting the effort to feed vital NHS front line workers with nutritious, balanced and tasty meals.

We donated our time and products to supply a Visual Management solution that helps the volunteers organise the days plan for gathering the donations for re-distribution.

New project set-ups like this can benefit greatly from Visual Management boards by providing-

-A platform and focal point for team discussion.

-A forum to raise and discuss issues and concerns.

-A visual “one source of truth” for data and plans that need to be communicated to a team.
