Meets on April 1 from 1 PM to 5 PM Eastern Time (no foolin').
Learn about “Pull” production (aka kanban) and how “triggers” can be used to drive production based on actual customer requirements as opposed to forecasts. The session gives attendees an understanding of the key components of a pull system and sets the stage for them to be able to plan and implement a pull system on their own shop floor. It outlines the pros and cons of different pull systems and explains how pull prevents overproduction and associated wastes. This course is designed to show how pull systems can effectively link processes that cannot be combined to create continuous flow.
