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.
In this module you'll learn what kanban are and how they can be used to control the production and movement within any facility. You'll also learn what many of the most common kanban systems are including the simple, but powerful, 2 bin kanban system.
2 Card Kanban System
You will learn how the popular 2 card kanban system operates through a detailed simulation where you will watch production and withdrawal kanban flow through a mixed model production process. Not to be confused with the 2 bin system, the 2 card system is powerful and, used properly, will change the way your factory operates.
