Kanban is a simple replenishment system that is triggered by a real demand-pull system. Since the trigger is based on a real time need, it is accurate and effective. It is not susceptible to data-entry delay, data-entry error. Kanban works well when integrated with Storage at point of use and other visual systems.

But why do you need to utilize Pull Manufacturing? Because Lean manufacturing is really about minimizing the need for overhead

  • which is about concentrating precisely on only what is necessary;
  • which is about linking interdependent supply system decisions, and actions;
  • and which needs to be visual, responsive and simple to manage.
