The paper proposes a concept for a dashboard to be used as part of Last Planner based production planning and control. The dashboard is constructed to be used, not primarily by management, but by the last planners. For this reason the dashboard has to be simple (it should focus on some few but important metrics), and it has to be balanced (it should give a holistic view of the status of the process and where it is heading). It is proposed that the dashboard should consist of three sections: planning, production flow and outcome. Each of these three sections should comprise one or a few metrics, put together so as to and provide a consolidated overview of both status and direction. We present a specific dashboard consisting of six metrics in all. This dashboard will be tested in a forthcoming case study.
