Examples of Green Room Data walls will be seen in the article below.  Many companies have Team Meetings, Huddles, weekly or daily, even some are called The Green Room.

The major difference between these and the ones shown below is that QCDSM/SQCDM sets up these meetings with 3 fundamental requirements:

  1. The People of the area must be present – shared by other companies, of course, but
  2. Daily, up to the minute and displayed data/information is the focus of the meetings and the participation of all in the meeting is required to manage the issues that arise with a fixed Agenda.
  3. A third requirement is that these meetings are complemented by similar meetings up the management chain.

Please refer to the list of items down the left hand side of this page and click on the link: THE GREEN ROOM MEETING for more information.


You cannot manage what you don’t measure…

In today’s highly competitive world every company is seeking ways to reach out to their customers, improve their market share and grow their businesses. No matter what decisions are taken to achieve these goals, little progress can be made without the full participation of ALL members of the company. Empowering and enabling employees to not only share their goals but to actively participate and promote them is the greatest challenge to this success.

QCDSM is the process that addresses this fundamental challenge. The process whereby the people of a company are enabled through their participation in decision making, problem solving, safety enhancement and delivering improved efficiencies and productivity using Lean Principles such as waste removal and continual improvements is the next step in a company’s push for excellence and growth.

Consistent Quality, Competitive Cost, On Time Delivery, Excellent Safety and High Employee Morale are goals that are obtainable provided you have the process in place to achieve them. QCD Systems has developed this process and has had over 35 years experience in transferring this expertise to global companies and individual companies in North, Central and South America, Mexico, United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. We are working and have worked on all 5 continents and we are very eager to share this process with you,

QCDSM is an holistic process empowering the people of a company to manage their areas and to ensure that the supply chain is healthy and running smoothly. The added benefit is that it also empowers the people to offer their ideas and suggestions based on the visual measurements in their areas, on how to improve productivity and efficiency.
