The simplicity and clarity of the T-Card system makes it perfect for visual planning.

T-Card systems have been around for decades, so why have they continued to be successful, even when other systems seem to have replaced them? Two words - simplicity and clarity!

T-Cards

The main element of a T-Card is that key information is held on the Visible Edge. This detail is seen when the card is in the slot, so the eye is drawn when looking for that information. The body of the T-Card holds the detail. Depending on the size of the card will determine the amount/ type of information you can hold.

T-Card Boards

Once information is held on a T-Card, it can now be used to keep track, allocate and manage on the T-Card Board. Traditional boards are made up with Columns that indexed with heading and rows.

The online system allows you to use the standard Day/ Date or Months heading or you can decide to create your own headings. The system can also index specific rows.

Traditional uses for T-Cards are as follows

Planning - Jobs or Tasks planned over weekly, monthly or yearly basis.

Allocation - The status of jobs which are going through various processes. What machine, or with whom?

Stock Control - Monitor key items for various tasks. For example in a KANBAN environment.

Communication - Capturing ideas/ or relaying important information.

The T Cards Online system enables us to run reports showing upcoming projects, the history of existing projects and with instant access to multiple users who are out on site.
