Pierson Workholding Magnetic Status Board

Jay Pierson of Pierson Workholding designed and built a quick and easy way to track the status of the jobs going on in his shop. With the ability to track stock quantities, order status, and machining progress, this magnetic board is a one-stop-shop for employees to know what needs done and what is already done in an organized fashion.

The Status Board is made up of galvanized steel sheets, with a chart printed over them. Because everything on the board is magnetic, the board is completely modular and can change along with the ever changing needs of a growing business. This means you don’t need to make a new board every time you add a new part or stop manufacturing an old one.
