Useful signs in the probelab
« on: June 16, 2017, 01:21:07 pm »

I strive to "child proof" my lab with useful signs and notes as much as I can. One of the more silly but quite effective ones that I wanted to share here is a reminder for the users to focus their analysis points.

Simply saying it, drawing diagrams why it is important and doing an interpretative dance of the entire concept didn't yield the success rate I was aiming for. Since I have put this picture up (attached below), it has worked much, much better. I simply put it in the "Tolsby" frame from Ikea ( that you can get for 99 cents.

Maybe others have similar ideas to share.

Yes, resisting the urge to put up too many signs (to prevent "sign fatigue") is a constant struggle. Cudos for your creativity!
