The FlowBoard serves for process and quality optimization in operative teams, both in commercial and in commercial environment. Its principle is the visualization and simple solving of small and miniature problems that are accepted under normal conditions and remain unsolved.

The idea behind the FlowBoard is based on the principle of the Problem Solving Board as it is used within Kaizen at Toyota and many other manufacturing companies. The difference to the classic Problem Solving Board is the visual representation in the form of four colored areas for the process steps and the limitation to the pure idea development and implementation.

The FlowBoard system was developed by the Düsseldorf company NEU - Gesellschaft für Innovation mbH.
