Kanban The Kanban is a simple and visual communication way between the costumer and the supplier, which allows to pass from a push flow to a pull flow.
The Kanban System implementation allows to:
- To transmit in real time the customer need
- To regulate the supplier production according to customer request.
- To control the stock levels between entities
- To make evident the non flexibility and dysfunctions of the supplier.
The Kanban system is not only a « field » production management tool, but also a way to visualize the progress that has been made by the supplier. In this way, it contributes to the production team autonomy who can permanently measure the impact of the committed improvement actions.
