Andon is a system to notify management, maintenance, and other workers of a quality or process problem. The centrepiece is a signboard incorporating signal lights to indicate which workstation has the problem. The alert is activated manually by a worker using a pull cord or button. The system includes a means to stop production so the issue can be corrected and incorporates audio alarms and visual displays. It has the added benefit of continuous supplier quality auditing.
