A USEFUL PROBLEM DETECTION TOOL AND TO REACT IMMEDIATELY
A famous system to alert and stop the production immediately is the Andon system. An Andon accelerates the information flow related to slowdowns and stops of the production system. Most famous is probably the Andon cord. This is a rope hanging from the ceiling. If the operator encounters a problem, he pulls the rope, which gives a signal to the Andon that there is a problem. Usually a second pull cancels the signal and tells the Andon that the problem is solved.
