Many enterprises using state of art technology know that up-to-date information can make all the difference between meeting a deadline or not, during the institution of a project. That is why you need to take the help of production control boards to give you all this information, at the right time. These production boards are of 2 types – the screens may be interactive or they may be static. Each type of screen has its own plus points.

You can consider a static board to be like a notice board. You put some information on it, and it is going to remain there until you decide to update the data. The information which you are going to put here can be about the goals, objectives, targets, KPIs, departmental information and data, measurable targets achieved, and other such information, visit does not need to be updated on an hourly or a minute by minute basis.

On the other hand, an interactive screen is going to be giving you the latest information. Your team members are encouraged to update the particular data and information which is going to be placed on the screen. They are also going to be monitoring it. That means there are no time lags between the display of the information and the assimilation of the project’s status in the mind of everybody who reads the information on the interactive screen. Interactive screens have another plus point. They have software which is immediately going to change the status of every single piece of data on the screen, depending on the new information fed to them. So, for example, if a numerical value is less than an already fed in value, the screen is going to show a red colored status. Anybody looking at that screen is going to understand that there is something wrong, somewhere.

However, if you use a static production control board to give this sort of data, there is a possibility that you are going to change that data so that it shows up in the screen, and there it is going to stay, until a new result is achieved.
So if you are looking for up-to-date information which can make all the difference between the success and failure of a project, you need to put up an interactive screen. If you want to give people information which can stay “put” for a long time, you can use a static production control board. Your decision is definitely going to depend upon the type of business, the type of project, the use to which you are using the interactive screen or the static production board, depending on your company’s or your team’s requirements.
