Kanban Simulator for the Shopfloor

Description

Kanban means “information card” in Japanese and is an inventory control system for tracking the flow of in- process materials through the various operations of a just-in-time production process. Kanban is the unavoidable nerve system of Lean production and is the last stage of the Lean set-up leading towards balanced pull production where need for a product or service is communicated. Effective implementation reduces overproduction, wasted space, unnecessary labor and poor information and materials flow. This seminar teaches the methodology for implementing Kanban throughout the production units and between all processes and operations. 

Suitable for: Factory and production managers, merchandisers, industrial engineers and planners
