Kanban in Batch Production
While our goal as Lean Practitioners is to flow material one piece at a time there may be situations where you must produce some products in a batch. The good news is this sort of system can still be kept under control using a Signal Kanban system. In this module you will learn how this works through another simulation where you will watch a Signal Kanban system in action.
