Tcard Process Confirmation is a visual management tool commonly used in lean manufacturing. It involves using Tcards to track and confirm the completion of work processes in a standardised way. The system ensures that all work processes are executed consistently and that any deviations or issues are identified and corrected immediately.
Tcards are small cards used to represent individual work processes or tasks. They typically have a unique identifier, such as a number or a colour, and are arranged in a specific order to represent the sequence of work processes. Each card also has space to record information such as the date and time of completion, the name of the person who completed the task, and any relevant comments or notes.
The Tcard process confirmation system involves a series of steps designed to ensure that work processes are executed consistently and that any deviations or issues are identified and addressed promptly. These steps include:
Designing the T card system: The first step in implementing Tcard process confirmation is to design the Tcards and the board's layout. The Tcards should be arranged in the order of the work processes, and the board should be located in a visible and accessible area.
Assigning responsibilities: Each Tcard should be assigned to a specific person or team responsible for completing the task. The name of the person or team should be recorded on the Tcard.
Daily confirmation: At the beginning of each day, the person responsible for each Tcard should confirm that the work process has been completed according to the standard work procedure. They should record the date and time of completion, their name, and any relevant comments or notes on the Tcard.
Verification: A supervisor or team leader should verify the completion of each work process and review the comments or notes on the Tcards. Any deviations or issues should be identified and addressed immediately.
