This is how much has been produced. This can be incremented by
pushing the up or down buttons in the run screen. The sensor port
will increment up even when in the menus.
This is how many should be produced right now. It follows the
concept of takt time, it will increment up one every takt.
Takt is a German word that means beat or rhythm. Takt Time is
calculated by dividing the shift goal by the hours, minutes, or
seconds per shift. Example: if the shift goal is 900 units and the
shift has 7.5 working hours (450 minutes) the takt time would be 900
units/450 minutes which equals a takt of 2 units per minute.
LeanTempo Basic will compute this automatically and will increment
the goal up by 1 unit every 30 seconds.
This is how many hours are worked in the shift. Take total shift
length and subtract out any breaks, lunches, or 5S time allocated to
the employees. Keep things like changeover time or other non-value
added time in the shift length. The LeanTempo Basic Production timer
will highlight when the team is behind or ahead of goal.
This is how many units should be produced during the shift.
Step 1: Plug the included HDMI cable into the back of the Lean Tempo
Basic Unit, then plug the HDMI cable into the back of the TV or Monitor.
If the Monitor uses a DVI connection use the included adapter. Lean
Tempo Basic works with almost any monitor or TV, however the unit was
designed for 720p or higher resolution.
Step 2 (Optional): Plug in any normally open (NO) switch or sensor to
the switch inputs with the included male banana plugs. If a sensor is
used it will need to be powered externally. For more info on connecting
sensors see section below.
Step 3: Plug the power supply into any 110v outlet and plug the small
5v end into the Lean Tempo Basic unit. To power down the unit either go to the menu and select Power Off twice or push the power button and select Power Off. To power on the unit after it has been powered off hold the power button for 2 seconds.
Step 4: Ensure that the TV or monitor is turned on and set to the
appropriate HDMI input.
Downtime functionality is active without changing any settings in the
To start counting downtime hold the pause button until the downtime
screen shows up. When in downtime mode the screen will alternate between
showing the run screen and the downtime screen (left image below).
Downtime will only show up on the run screen if a run screen with
downtime is selected (the middle and right images below). If a run
screen without downtime is selected the downtime functionality will
still work, but will only be visible when in active downtime.
The Lean Tempo Plus improves
productivity, gives real-time production status, is simple to
use, and is user configurable. All for only
