Description: This paper is an investigation of the Visual Management System (VMS) and the Visual Resource Inventory and Evaluation Process (VRIEP). Questionnaires were developed and sent to persons who were experienced with VMS and/or VRIEP. VMS has been found easier to under-stand and apply than VRIEP. The methodology of VRIEP has been found to he a more complete approach than that of VMS, Sensitivity levels in both manuals were found to he the sections most difficult to understand, apply, and in need of most improvement and research. Recommended are changes to methodology and criteria as well as the development of a system national in scope with regionally adjustable criteria.
