Enabling Teams to Pull Value to Customers More Efficiently
The Kanban system is a bellwether lean tool for manufacturers to ensure they receive the right part at the right time. Kanban has proven invaluable as a self-regulating pull system that requests parts only when needed via card pull signals; however, as our products and environment have become increasingly complex, our manual linear supply chain systems are breaking.
Although effective, Kanban, and the Kata mindset required to optimize value creation are equally misunderstood. eKanban software is gaining traction as a practical tool to dramatically increase both physical and information flow visibility. Second, supply chain velocity can be positively impacted as earlier supply information enables adjustments that ensure ongoing manufacturing flow. Lastly, volume can be increased using bar code and smart labels and scanners that track a wider range of information, reduce physical scans, and enable dynamic routing changes.
In this class, we’ll outline Kanban strategies, tactics and tools to help you reduce your supply chain management workload, stress and costs, in less time.
