By providing a visual representation of tasks, work flow can be organized and displayed in an easily communicated display. Being able to actually physically move a task across the board is a powerful and motivating tool that inspires confidence in a project team.
Track product orders and workflow:

These stages can even be subdivided into more specific stages if the scope of the manufacturing project requires it.
Stay on schedule:
