In Japanese, the word “Kan” means “visual” and “ban” means “card,” so Kanban refers to visual cards. Kanban is one of the Lean tools designed to reduce the idle time in a production process. The main idea behind the Kanban system is to deliver what the process needs exactly when it needs it.
After going through Kanban strategy training workshop participants will understand and learn about:
- Learn how to use Kanban in order to maximize its benefits.
- Understand the origins of Kanban.
- Understand options for tuning the Kanban implementation.
- Learn about the computation of Number of Kanban Cards.
- Understand core concepts of the Kanban Method.
- Learn about the types of Kanban systems and when each is appropriate.
- Understanding and utilizing lead times, risk classes and work variabilities.
