Kanban in 10 Steps

KanbanSimulationKanban isn’t always the right answer or even possible. But when it is and makes sense here’s what to do; a simple kanban implementation plan:

  1. Customer requirements: ABC analysis, demand segmentation & linearity
  2. People: involvement, training
  3. Process: observation, mapping, layout, changeover, run size, OEE, process linearity
  4. Kanban: one card, two card
  5. Materials handling, buffer stock location, organization
  6. Container: sizing, selection or design
  7. Visual design: card or container labels
  8. Kanban math
  9. Control system: recalculate # of cards, missing cards
  10. Design documentation
