New Planning Role

Planning Boards? Are they still operating in this modern computer dominated business world?

Yes they are, take a look around any office or workplace. Do you see whiteboards, year planners, holiday schedules, paper charts or even post-it notes? These are all forms of manual planning information systems playing an important role in the running of the modern business

Over the years the traditional role of the manual planning board has of course been replaced by software systems. However, they have not disappeared but simply improved and modernised to play a new, important supporting role to the computer

A Complete Schedule

Create a BIG PICTURE of your complete schedule

Software systems contain the smallest and numerous components of any plan. This may be a problem when often all that is required is a summary or ‘BIG PICTURE’ of a complete schedule. Scrolling or rapidly out dated print-outs are not acceptable, particularly when the schedule has to be viewed in its entirety at production and team meetings

The popular Eurocharts magnetic scheduling system provides the communication link between a detailed software plan and a fully visual, rapidly updated and complete summary schedule overview. Coloured magnetic information textplates lock onto the ribbed, steel panel surface and are updated by simply sliding the textplates along the planning line or relocating to another resource

Features

Magnetic Planning System, modular construction Planning Panel

Modular Construction

Magnetic Planning Board Systems are modular in design. Modular index and planning panels are linked side by side into set(s) of wall rails forming a planning display board of any size – dependent on the system requirement.This may be enlarged at a future date by the addition of further panels

Magnetic Display Board, system application example

Sliding Index Panel

Utilising the double tracked wall rails, the Sliding Index panel (Ref: MPI) moves across the system face for accurate index to activity text plate designation

Mobile Display Stand -Convert wall mounted Magnetic Planning Systems to a free-standing

Mobile Display Stand

Convert your wall mounted magnetic planning system to a free standing unit

The robust, steel construction mobile display stand (with lockable castors) holds 60, 120, and 180 planning line depth panels and all magnetic planning kit systems. Wall rails not included

Rotating System: Remove the empty left hand modular panel
Rotating System: Slide the remaining system panels along the wall rail
Rotating System: Re-date and reposition the empty panel at system end

‘Rotating’ Planning Panels

A Perpetual Time Schedule

Once the first time period has elapsed, simply remove the empty left hand modular panel, slide the remaining system panels along the wall rail to the index panel, then re-date and reposition the empty panel at the system end to maintain a perpetual time schedule

Wall mounted or free standing Magnetic Planning Systems

Multi-Application

Production, Project and Personnel are but a few of the many system applications and are available as ready boxed kit solutions or if preferred, custom built to requirement. Wall mounted or free standing

Magnetic compound, rear profiled Planning Text Plates

Magnetic Text Plates

Profiled magnetic text plates lock onto the gridded and ribbed metal planning panel surface. Changes to plan? Simply slide along the planning line or relocate to another position

Hand write (and erase) data onto the Magnetic Text Plate

Write On/Wipe Clean

Hand write essential information onto the magnetic text plates with the fine point water based marker pens and wipe clean for re-use at job completion

Magnetic text plates 'snap' to length in 10mm increments

Snap To Length

Precisely allocate data to the planning timescale. Magnetic text plates ‘snap’ to length aligning with the planning panel time scale grid

No more handwritten text plates!

Electronic Lettering Machine

No more handwritten text plates! Computer linked lettering machine produces (removable) printed adhesive labels in a selection of styles and sizes
