Used to highlight inventory waste being stockpiled, the hotspot board changes the flow positioning of elements on the board so that the centre area is high focus.
With the centre highlighted in red, all “Ready for” columns return to this midzone. Team members should watch this midzone for too much work being built up and focus on ensuring that flow through this zone is even. But such watching of inventory waste shouldn’t be at the expense of work that is in process as well.
