This session offers a deep dive into Kanban and flow production. Understand the methodology of Kanban and how it can stabilize production operations. Explore the ways Kanban can prevent expensive product shortages; how and where it fits in a Lean value stream; and how it interrelates and integrates with other Lean tools.
Further, you’ll gain an understanding of what changes in human behavior are needed, the data collection process, the design and functionality of a Kanban board and card system and the Kanban equation—the formula necessary to determine the number of Kanban needed to establish your Lean inventory level.
Our kanban session offer different agendas to accommodate high-volume, low-volume, job shops, and mixed model pull-production environments.
- Workshop: classroom learning, simulation
- Kaizen Session: classroom learning, simulation, hands-on application
- Facilitated Coaching/Consulting: implementation in your environment
