Kanban Workshop

The key for a successful Production System

 In-field Training


While manufacturing efficiency is important, it doesn’t stand alone, one of the keys to Lean’s success is the role that Production Planning and Control plays in the organization.

The voice of the customer must be clear and consistent through the manufacturing flow, communication from the Customer, Suppliers, Manufacturing, and Engineering is key for success.

The kanban workshop will give the participant a chance to create a Production Forecast and Firm Plan, create a weekly plan, and create a Kanban control board to regulate production (replenishment) and confirm production readiness (Man, Method, Machine, and Material).


Participants will split into teams to perform activities in selected processes.
