Kanban October 1, 2007

Posted by Coolguy in Six Sigma.

Kanban is “Sign” in Japaneese. It originates from Toyota. It provides for material control for the factory floor.

Kanban is intended to provide a product to customer with shortest possible lead time. Inventory and lead times are reduced thru leveling of production. Kanban’s are generally cards to provide some indication of parts, time of delivery etc. Cards control flow of production and inventory.

Kanban is not suited for one-of-a-kind production operations.
