Description

A Kanban Pull System is a Lean technique that is used to control the flow of work by only replacing what has been consumed. This means that the trigger for work to be done is when a customer demands it. To better visualize a Pull System, take for example a vending machine. Products will only be replenished when the stocks have run out. Suppliers won’t overstock the vending machine because each lane has a set capacity. If there is no demand for the product, then they won’t replenish it.

In the vending machine example, the customer pulls products from the vending machine. Having an empty rack is a signal for the vending company to tap their brand partners to replenish their stocks. Therefore, the vending company also pulls products from the brand partners. All these happen because they act according to customer demand.

This Kanban workshop provides participants with a thorough understanding of the tools and techniques for the design and implementation of a Consumption Based Replenishment System. Students will gain comprehensive knowledge of the proper use and implementation techniques of a pull system utilizing Kanban and the warnings of inappropriate/ill-timed implementation.
