Case Study

Display Board/Kiosk

Original Display Board

Overview

The display board hangs on a wall or a few hooks hovering over the employees below. It weighed 250 pounds constructed of wood and steel. The signage was printed on magnets. This is the customers brand image.

Problem:  

The original display board was heavy- 250 pounds, unsafe and took one person 3.5 hours to install. 

 

Goal:

While maintaining brand identity, the goal was to reduce the complexity with identifying more streamlined manufacturing techniques, and reducing cost/weight focusing on material choices and adding safety measures for the overhead signage.

Results:

  • Construction method and material change yielded a 50% weight reduction 125 pounds.

  • Set up time improved to 1.5 hours.

  • Added safety spring clips to prevent menu boards from being knocked off and causing potential injury.

  • Working with installer-manufacturing- assembly personnel to achieve targeted goal.
