Fitzpatrick Manufacturing is working on experimenting with visual display boards for scheduling in high-traffic, high-paced areas in our shop. The first display board was integrated in our main inspection lab in 2011. This system provides information in real time to all employees involved in that work area. We are going to expand this system to our special project area as well as to our shipping and receiving area. The information is facilitated and displayed using our internally developed databases. Going forward in 2012, Fitzpatrick Manufacturing is placing priority on the application of new technologies to facilitate communication.
