The wheel is a management calendar that helps you schedule tasks. Use it in the way that best suits your management style. For example:

The wheel contains lots of general management information that can be adjusted for individual operations and different management styles. If you have questions about any of these management or production recommendations, consult an expert or professional in your area.

In combination with a wall calendar, this tool will help producers stay on schedule despite the busy lifestyle and competing demands they are faced with.

The 7.875-by-7.875-inch wheel is made of high-quality, washable plastic that will last a long time.
