Shadow Boards are visual methods of storing and organizing tools, parts and other items so that they are easy to identify and readily available at specific workplaces. Each shadow board consists of outlines or “shadows” in the shape of individual items to make it obvious where each item should be stored. Shadow Boards are always placed where the work is being performed. This ensures that the tools and equipment are close at hand which reduces wasted motion and saves time from having to track down needed tools.
