TRAINING & WORKSHOPS: LEAN THINKING

Kanban and Pull Systems (1 day)

Description:
Pull Systems are used to regulate suppliers so that nothing is made or delivered until a pull signal is received from downstream. Pull systems are critical to inventory management in lean environments and are key to Just-In-Time (JIT) production. An in-depth overview of pull systems is provided in this full-day workshop. Through lecture and hands-on examples, participants learn about the different ways pull systems can be used to manage work-in-process and sequence workflow.

Outline:

  • Lean Thinking principles
  • The theory and objectives of pull
  • Essential elements and prerequisites for effective pull systems
  • Types of pull systems (basic pull, supermarket, two-bin, three-bin, FIFO lane, heijunka)
  • Kanban loop sizing

Target Audience and Outcomes:
The workshop is appropriate for anyone involved in the design, set-up, operation or maintenance of kanban pull systems within their organization. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to design and implement pull systems for most business conditions.

Notes:
Participants receive a three-ring binder with all presentation slides. Some of our clients have conducted this workshop jointly with their procurement specialists and key suppliers to expose all parties to kanban techniques to design and implement effective multi-company pull systems.
