Abstract [en]

This paper provides a holistic view of visual communication of performance measures supporting continuous improvement in manufacturing SMEs. This is done by a theoretical part with a literature review, and an empirical part with case studies, including both the managers’ and the operators’ perspectives, and by focusing on manufacturing SMEs. The paper identifies five challenges and one opportunity in visual communication that SMEs perceive when using visual communication of performance measures, supporting continuous improvement.
