In this course focused on introducing the powerful topic of kanban, Ron Pereira explains what kanban are and how to implement some of the most popular kanban systems into a production environment. You'll also receive access to kanban calculators that make the sometimes intimidating math involved simple and easy to handle. Finally, Ron will explain what needs to be in place to ensure kanban success as well as the 6 rules to follow to ensure your kanban system not only survives, but thrives over time.
2 Card Kanban Calculations
In this module you will learn how to calculate the number of Production and Withdrawal Kanban needed with the 2 Card Kanban System. We'll also introduce an Excel based Kanban Calculator that makes these calculations unbelievably simple and fast.
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.
