Figure 3: This comprehensive performance display is the core communication centre
at this fast-moving print enterprise, with data changing in real time throughout
the day. Besides representing the daily (even hourly) health of the plan, satellite
boards populated the production floor and link a spectrum of departments in the
same data chain. Given the option, this company wisely refused to trade these live
manual boards in for LCD monitors, realising that software-based displays reduce
authentic connectivity and the context of meaning.
